Scientific Method Help

I am a student teacher and I will be teaching a lesson on the Scientific Method. One part of the exercise I will get the students to read over a few experiments and they will identify the main parts of the scientific method. The one problem I am having is I can't really find any experiements that are suitable to grade 11 Biology students.

Any suggestions?

I imagine you don't have a ton of pull as a student teacher. Would this be correct?

Are these AP/honors bio students or no?

Edit: In other words, how much do they know?

Edit2: If they're sufficiently comfortable with proteins, perhaps the DRACO paper from MIT? That should get the future therapeutic researchers in your class excited. They do plenty of controls too.

http://www.plosone.org/article/info%...l.pone.0022572 (hope you can access it).

Edit3: Why do grade 11 students need to be lectured on the scientific method?

Not really, no.

Dissections are later on.

These are not honors students. I haven't met them yet but they will not know what proteins are.

That article would be too complicated for them. I have lots of experiments and scientific articles but they would be too complicated for them, even if I re write it and tone it down.

Student teacher, eh?

Good luck. That was me in 2007.

I would just grab a few papers from Web of Science, isolate the subjects, factors, treatments, etc. and condense them into a half-page/page summary for them to pick through.
