Scientists design investigations to test their predictions

Key Ideas

  • Scientists design a process where they can observe phenomena that will test their predictions.

Teacher reflection

  • Why do scientists predict first and then design investigations based on their predictions?
  • If a scientist didn’t make predictions, what might happen in an investigation?
  • Can all predictions be tested by investigations? Why or why not?
