This is an image describing the scientific method in steps from 1 to 7 inclusive. 1 - define a question. 2 - make observations. 3 - form a hypothesis. 4 - experiment to test your hypothesis. 5 - analyse and interpret data. 6 - draw conclusions, do your observations support your hypothesis? If no then try again and make a new hypothesis and return to the 4th stage. If yes then to the 7th and final stage - communicate your findings.
