If you are teaching kids about the scientific method and want a really fun way to learn about it, start with the Zoey and Sassafras books. They are a huge favorite in out house. We anxiously await each new one. Then, to go right along with them, I have some adorable printable scientific method worksheets and posters for use in teaching your kids about the process of the scientific method.
Just in case you forgot from your own science class, let refresh our memories on the steps of the scientific method.
What Is The Scientific Method or Scientific Process
The scientific method, also called the scientific process is the process that scientists use to solve a problem or question that they may have. There are six steps followed in the process.
- Ask a question
- Make a hypothesis
- Record Data
This printable set includes a full-page poster for each of these steps explaining what they are, a page listing the 6 steps, as well as a definition of the scientific process.
Scientific Method Worksheets
Along with the posters, I have two scientific process worksheets for kids to complete or use in their own science experiment. One of the worksheets is a matching page to match the definition with the term. This is a great way to help kids to learn and remember what each of the steps of the scientific process are.
The second worksheet is to be used in a science experiment. Kids can fill out their question, write what they learn from their research, how they tested the experiment, and a place for results and conclusions.

Back to the Zoe and Sassafras books for a minute. If you are new to these books, Zoey is a curious little girl who loves science. Sassafras is her cat. In each book, Zoey uses the scientific method to experiment and test experiments to help cure magical animals who come to her for help. They are adorable books and my kids (of all ages) love them. I even love reading them to my kids. You can’t say that about all kids’ books, am I right?! So, I highly recommend you check them out.
