Scientific Revolution
During the Renaissance, scientists explored new areas of knowledge and began to discover and think in new ways. Their discoveries changed the ways people lived. 

Scientific Method: As you know, the Renaissance began a new way of thinking. Instead of accepting the writings of ancient scholars and religious leaders, people began to think for themselves. This led to experimenting and a new way was born called the Scientific Method. 

Scientific Method: way of discovery that includes observation, experimenting and drawing conclusions. 

Respect for the achievements of Renaissance scientists led scholars in other fields to question what they had been taught in the past. This led scholars to apply the scientific methods to other areas of learning.
