Standard 1/Middle School
scientific questions about the world based on observation.
Children are curious about
things from birth, it does not have to be taught. Inquiry into authentic
questions generated from student experiences is the central strategy for
teaching science. Beginning with their observations, students will
describe, explain, and predict natural phenomena. Students will develop
questions from their observations that can be answered through scientific
inquiry. Students will construct questions about the world in ways that
lead to finding answers through investigations, building things, and
consulting informational sources.
