Steps of the Scientific Method | Printable Student Science Journals

Teaching students to use the many steps of the scientific method will help in all areas of school work. The scientific method or inquiry process is the future of common core and the multi level task that students will be assessed on. STEM needs to be taught as a integrated model starting at kindergarten to help students build problem solving and academic resiliency.
The search for scientific knowledge extends far back into antiquity. At some point in the past, at least by the time of Aristotle, philosophers recognized that a fundamental distinction should be drawn between two kinds of scientific knowledge — roughly, knowledge that and knowledge why. It is one thing to know that each planet periodically reverses the direction of its motion with respect to the background of fixed stars; it is quite a different matter to know why. Knowledge of the former type is descriptive; knowledge of the latter type is explanatory. It is explanatory knowledge that provides scientific understanding of the world. (Salmon, 1990)
