Best Answer

The first step is to pose the question or problem to be investigated. This is followed by observations, which help to form a hypothesis to explain the observed phenomenon or effect.

It is generally observations of phenomena that suggest some questions to be investigated, so these steps are often complementary.

The scientific method is a way to ask and answer scientific questions by making observations and doing experiments. The steps of the scientific method are to: Ask a Question; Do Background Research; Construct a Hypothesis; Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment; Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion; Communicate.

Depending on which version of it your teacher is using, it's probably either noting a problem or asking a question. Both of these steps are integral to finding something out later, because if you don't know there's something wrong, you won't try to fix it, and if you don't have a question, you probably won't make if very far while trying to find things out.
