• 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, and measured. • Select appropriate tools and technology (e.g., calculators, computers, thermometers, meter sticks, balances, graduated cylinders, and microscopes), and make quantitative observations. • 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.
