Answer

Observation: Making note/observation of an aspect (natural or artificial); Law: Summary of a large number of observations; Hypothesis: Educated scientific guess based on observations (Note, this is not an educated guess in the traditional sense, for a person does not just say that this makes sense, so I am going to make a hypothesis. Rather, a hypothesis is heavily based on facts, and it is then examined through an experiment.); Theory: A model that can explain the underlying cause of an observation.
