Make a Research Plan


Scientists follow a specific series of steps when they approach problems and test ideas, called the scientific method. What is their first step? Asking a question! This book shows students why it is so important to come up with a specific, directional question before starting an experiment. Readers will learn about how to come up with questions, and how to answer those questions through experimentation. This book teaches students how to apply the concept to their own experiments and projects. Readers will walk away with the tools they need to experiment like a scientist.
