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.
B. Generate Scientific Evidence Through Active Investigations:  Students master the conceptual, mathematical, physical, and computational tools that need to be applied when constructing and evaluating claims.
By the end of grade
