The Scientific Method in the Lab
The very first step in the scientific method is to state the _________titleproblemconclusiondata. Once you have done this you can do some research and then form a good _________conclusionanalysishypothesisguess. Then we test this by doing _________an experimenta processa conclusion. We then analyze all of our _________numbersdataprocedures and finally form a _________reportgraphconclusion.
There are a lot of safety rules that we must follow in the science lab as well. One piece of equipment we will use most often is _________an aprona pair of glovesgoggles. If you spill harsh chemicals on your skin you should run it under water for at least _________5 seconds15 seconds15 minutesone hour. When smelling chemicals, never take a big sniff, always _________waftinhale deeplysniff fast. Never ever start a _________labfirepaperwarm up when the teacher is not in the room.

On the other hand, _________densityvolumemass is the amount of space occupied by an object; and the mass per unit of volume is known as _________gramslitersdensity. The amount of matter in an object is called _________weightpoundskilogramsmass.
When doing a lab report two magic words must be included in the _________titlepurposehypothesismaterials. Those two magic words are _________I thinkIf thenI predictI believe. The materials should be written as a _________sentencelistparagraphpoem. Charts and graphs will be found in the _________dataconclusionproceduresmaterials section of the lab report.
Metric prefixes are a big part of measurement in science. The prefix kilo means _________101001000.01. The prefix milli is way on the other side of the chart and means _________.01.001101000. The prefix Deca means _________101001000.1. The prefix Hecto means _________100101000.01.
