Grades 3-5 SEP
SCI.SEP1.A.3-5: Students ask questions that specify qualitative relationships. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP1.A.3-5.1: Ask questions about what would happen if a variable is changed.
SCI.SEP1.A.3-5.3: Ask questions that can be investigated and predict reasonable outcomes based on patterns such as cause and effect relationships.
SCI.SEP2.A.3-5: Students build and revise simple models and use models to represent events and design solutions. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP2.A.3-5.3: Develop a model using an analogy, example, or abstract representation to describe a scientific principle or design solution.
SCI.SEP3.A.3-5: Students plan and carry out investigations that control variables and provide evidence to support explanations or design solutions. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP3.A.3-5.2: Evaluate appropriate methods and tools for collecting data.
SCI.SEP3.A.3-5.4: Make predictions about what would happen if a variable changes.
SCI.SEP4.A.3-5: Students begin to use quantitative approaches to collect data and conduct multiple trials of qualitative observations. (When possible, digital tools should be used.) This includes the following:
SCI.SEP4.A.3-5.1: Represent data in tables or various graphical displays (bar graphs, pictographs, and pie charts) to reveal patterns that indicate relationships.
SCI.SEP4.A.3-5.2: Analyze and interpret data to make sense of phenomena, using logical reasoning, mathematics, or computation.
SCI.SEP5.A.3-5: Students extend quantitative measurements to a variety of physical properties, using computation and mathematics to analyze data and compare alternative design solutions. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP5.A.3-5.2: Describe, measure, estimate, and/or graph quantities such as area, volume, weight, and time to address scientific and engineering questions and problems.
SCI.SEP6.B.3-5: Students use evidence to create multiple solutions to design problems. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP6.B.3-5.1: Apply scientific ideas to solve design problems.
SCI.SEP8.A.3-5: Students evaluate the merit and accuracy of ideas and methods. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP8.A.3-5.3: Combine information in written text with that contained in corresponding tables, diagrams, or charts to support the engagement in other scientific and engineering practices.
