Skills of Inquiry, Experimentation, and Design
• Ask questions and make predictions that can be tested.
• Select and use appropriate tools and technology (e.g., calculators, computers,
balances, scales, meter sticks, graduated cylinders) in order to extend observations.
• Keep accurate records while conducting simple investigations or experiments.
• Conduct multiple trials to test a prediction. Compare the result of an investigation or
experiment with the prediction.
• Recognize simple patterns in data and use data to create a reasonable explanation for
the results of an investigation or experiment.
• Record data and communicate findings to others using graphs, charts, maps, models,and oral and written reports.
• Formulate a testable hypothesis.
• Design and conduct an experiment specifying variables to be changed, controlled,
• Select appropriate tools and technology (e.g., calculators, computers, thermometers,
meter sticks, balances, graduated cylinders, and microscopes), and make quantitative
• Present and explain data and findings using multiple representations, including
tables, graphs, mathematical and physical models, and demonstrations.
• Draw conclusions based on data or evidence presented in tables or graphs, and make
inferences based on patterns or trends in the data.
• Communicate procedures and results using appropriate science and technology terminology.
• Offer explanations of procedures, and critique and revise them.
