Teching the CCCS
Grades 5-8 Science
Science Practices

5.1 All students will understand that science is both a body of knowledge and an evidence-based, model-building enterprise that continually extends, refines, and revises knowledge. The four Science Practices strands encompass the knowledge and reasoning skills that students must acquire to be proficient in science.
A. Understand Scientific Explanations:  Students understand core concepts and principles of science and use measurement and observation tools to assist in categorizing, representing, and interpreting the natural and designed world.
By the end of grade
Content Statement
Cumulative Progress Indicator (CPI)
Core scientific concepts and principles represent the conceptual basis for model-building and facilitate the generation of new and productive questions.
Demonstrate understanding and use interrelationships among central scientific concepts to revise explanations and to consider alternative explanations.
Results of observation and measurement can be used to build conceptual-based models and to search for core explanations.
Use mathematical, physical, and computational tools to build conceptual-based models and to pose theories.
Predictions and explanations are revised based on systematic observations, accurate measurements, and structured data/evidence.
Use scientific principles and models to frame and synthesize scientific arguments and pose theories.
