Scientific Method for Kids

The scientific method is an approach to creating a hypothesis and then testing. This is a simple method that can help adults or children with this process. It is made up of 6 simple steps that will help anyone walk through the scientific process from having a question to coming to a scientific conclusion based on a concrete method and supporting data that can be reproduced. This scientific method for kids printable set is perfect for kids. We included a colorful poster that states all of the steps as well as a worksheet that children can use to work through the steps with their own experiment.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love these handy science printables to make learning science fun for kids from kindergartners to grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, and grade 6 students.

super cute free Scientific Method Poster

Scientific Method Poster

The poster is perfect for hanging on a wall of the classroom or having children put it in their notebooks. This is a great guide and reference while they are exploring the world of science. The poster shows all of the steps:

  1. Ask A Question: What is the core of the experiment going to be? What question do you have?
  2. Form A Hypothesis: What do you think will happen? What is your prediction?
  3. Experiment: Take your hypothesis and question to reality.
  4. Record Data: Write down all of the details. What ingredients used and in what order, what tools were used, what the reaction was, etc.
  5. Analyze Data: Read through the information that you collected.
  6. Conclusion: Record the conclusion.

Obviously, experiments can be done without writing down or going through each of the steps, but teaching students to complete the scientific process properly takes your science experiments at home to another level. This scientific method helps children really dive into what they are exploring. You can pour vinegar and baking soda together to see a reaction all day, but when you add the scientific method and really analyze it – they are learning even more! They will be able to share their findings, accurately repeat the project, and share their findings.

  • Hi! Thanks for offering these worksheets; they’re so cute and very helpful! I just wanted to let you know that a few of the icons (light bulb, beaker, and magnifying glass) print out with a black background instead of a transparent one. The worksheets are still usable, but I thought it might be something you’d want to fix :).

    • Hi Christi,
      So that is actually a rending error that comes from you printing the document from the web version instead of saving to a local drive and printing a local copy. =)
      Have a great day,
