The Scientific Method
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     What is science? Chances are you have been studying science for a few years now. But science is more than just a few chapters in a textbook. Science is a process. It is a constant search for information about our universe.
 
2     The word science comes from the Latin word, "scire," meaning "to know." Scientists are like police investigators. They use a process to solve a mystery. The process they use is called the scientific method.
 
3     Scientists begin this method by making an observation or stating a problem. This becomes the purpose of their study. Have you ever wondered why the sky is blue? Or how your skin heals when you cut it? If so, you have taken the first step of the scientific method.
