The student will demonstrate an understanding of scientific reasoning, logic, and the nature of science by planning and conducting investigations in which

    a) items such as rocks, minerals, and organisms are identified using various classification keys

    b) estimates are made and accurate measurements of length, mass, volume, and temperature          are made in metric units using proper tools

    c) estimates are made and accurate measurements of elapsed time are made using proper 

    tools

    d) hypotheses are formed from testable questions

    e) independent and dependent variables are identified

    f) constants in an experimental situation are identified

    g) data are collected, recorded, analyzed, and communicated using proper graphical

    representations and metric measurements

    h) predictions are made using patterns from data collected, and simple graphical data are

    generated 

    i) inferences are made and conclusions are drawn

    j) models are constructed to clarify explanations, demonstrate relationships, and solve needs

    k) current applications are used to reinforce science concepts.
