Understanding about science
Students will learn about science as a knowledge system: the features of scientific knowledge, the processes by which it is developed, and the ways in which the work of scientists interacts with society.
Investigating in science
Students will carry out science investigations using a variety of approaches: classifying and identifying, pattern seeking, exploring, investigating models, fair testing, making things, or developing systems.
Communicating in science
Students will develop knowledge of the vocabulary, numeric and symbolic systems, and conventions of science, and use this knowledge to communicate about their own and others’ ideas.
Participating and contributing
Students will bring a scientific perspective to actions and decisions as appropriate.
