1. What is Chemistry? - Definition, History & Branches
Known as the central science, chemistry is integral to our understanding of the natural world around us. In this lesson, you'll be introduced to the field of chemistry, learning about its history and its modern applications.
2. Chemistry Essential Questions
Having a series of fundamental questions for students to focus on when studying chemistry is extremely helpful. Why not try using these essential questions in your chemistry class?
3. Hypothesis, Theory & Law in Science
In this lesson, learn how to define hypothesis, theory, and law in science. Then, discover the ways that these ideas are related to each other and how they help us to explain the universe around us.
4. Hypothesis Lesson Plan
Understanding the scientific method can be challenging for some students. This hands-on lesson allows students to learn how to write a scientifically sound hypothesis through experimentation, class discussions and a video.
5. Forming a Hypothesis Activities for High School
High school students are often ready to work on some pretty sophisticated science. These activities will get your high school students forming and justifying educated scientific predictions as part of the scientific method.
6. Scientific Theory Lesson Plan
Use this lesson plan to introduce students to scientific theories. Students will watch a video lesson, discuss what they have learned, and create their own theories in the classroom.
7. The Scientific Method: Steps, Terms & Examples
The scientific method is more than just hypotheses and experiments. In this lesson, we'll explore the themes and variations that make up the world of science.
8. Teaching the Scientific Method
The scientific method is a time-tested approach to problem solving and investigation. This lesson defines the scientific method and describes how to teach it to your students.
9. Scientific Method Lesson Plan
Bring your instruction on the scientific method to life with the help of a Study.com video lesson and fun in-class experiment. For further study, suggestions for supplementary activities and related lessons are included.
10. Scientific Method Bulletin Board Ideas
The scientific method is central to science education. This lesson contains several bulletin board ideas for the scientific method that can be easily adapted to fit any grade level.
11. Scientific Method Activities for High School
For high school students, studying the scientific method can be done on a deeper level as they begin to understand why it is so important. Check out some of these ideas for scientific method activities appropriate for high school students.
12. Scientific Method Games & Activities
The scientific method is pretty technical, but we can make it more fun with some games and activities. Try out a few of these ideas in your classroom.
13. Scientific Method Projects
Need a few ideas for projects that help students use and understand the scientific method? This article gives a few ideas and will help you decide what will work best for your students.
