5 Science Process Skills enable students to formulate their questions and find out the answers systematically
6 OBSERVINGUsing the sense of hearing, touching, smelling, tasting and seeing to collect information about an object or a phenomenon.
7 CLASSIFYINGUsing observations to group objects or events according to similarities and differences.
8 CLASSIFYINGUsing observations to group objects or events according to similarities and differences.Living thingsNon living things
9 MEASURING & USING NUMBERS Making quantitative observations using numbers and tools with standardised units. Measuring makes observation more accurate.
10 INFERRINGUsing past experiences or previously collected data to draw conclusions and make explanations of events.Is it true?It must have rained.WET ROAD
11 PREDICTINGStating the outcome of a future event based on prior knowledge gained through experiences or collected data.
12 PREDICTINGActivity 1Plan an experiment that use skill of Basic and Intergrated SPSOne or two representative from the class
13 COMMUNICATINGUsing words or graphic symbols such as tables, graphs, figures or models to describe an action, object or event.
14 USING SPACE-TIME RELATIONSHIP Describing changes in parameter with time. Examples of parameters are location, direction, shape, size, volume, weight & mass.
15 INTERPRETING DATAGiving rational explanations about an object, event or pattern derived from collected data.
16 DEFINING OPERATIONALLY Defining all variables as they are used in the experiment by describing what must be done and what should be observed.
17 CONTROLLING VARIABLES Identifying the fixed variables, manipulated variables, and responding variable in an investigation. This manipulated variable is changed to observe its relationship with the responding variable. At the same time, the fixed variable is kept constant.
18 HYPOTHESISINGMaking a general statement about the relationship between a manipulated variable and a responding variable to explain an event or observation. This statement can be tested to determine its validity.
19 EXPERIMENTINGPlanning and conducting activities to test a certain hypothesis. These activities include collecting, analysing and interpreting data and making conclusions.
20 Psychomotor skills that enables students to: MANIPULATIVE SKILLSPsychomotor skills that enables students to:Use and handle science apparatus and specimens correctly and carefully,Draw apparatus, specimens and laboratory substances accurately,Clean and store science apparatus and laboratory substances correctly and safely.
