7 CLASSIFY / ORDERING Group information, objects or events together according to their properties.
8 CLASSIFY / ORDERING 2 - BLUE BUTTONS WITH TWO HOLES 3 - BROWN BUTTONS WITH 1 HOLE3 - PAIRS OF WHITE SHOES WITH LACES4 - PAIRS OF WHITE SHOES WITH NO LACES.
9 RECOGNIZING TIME / SPACE RELATIONSHIPS Estimate and / or describe howmoving and / or nonmoving objectsor related to one another during orbased upon a specific event.
10 MEASURING You use the skill of estimation, describe and record appropriate unitsof measurement (quantitativemeasurement) and make relationshipsbetween time and space.
11 COLLECTING, RECORDING, AND INTERPRETING DATA Gather and organize data in order to make it understandable (sense of), meaningful, and to find patterns that lead to inferences, predictions, andhypothesis.
12 COMMUNICATING Use written and spoken words, graphs, tables, diagrams, and technology presentations to shareand explain ideas and information.
13 INFERRING Form a conclusion based upon what you think explains your observations and data. Makinginferences may include cause and effectrelationships.
14 OBSERVATION OR INFERENCE? THE LADY HAS HER UMBRELLA UP.IT MUST BE RAINING OUTSIDE.
15 PREDICTING You state the anticipated outcomes of new or changed situations using your previous /past/ prior knowledge, experiences, andobservations.
16 PREDICTING I believe that the egg will float in salt water and sink in fresh water.
17 HYPOTHESIS Form and make suggested solutions to a problem; from observations or events.You will state in writing or verbally your solutionor explanation as the expected outcome of anexperiment.
18 IDENTIFYING AND CONTROLLING VARIABLES Be very specific in identifying the factors and / orcontrol the factors that might be expected toaffect the outcome of an experiment.You will select the variables to be manipulatedand / or held constant.
19 IDENTIFYING AND CONTROLLING VARIABLES Want to determine if the rate of plant growthin salt water and fresh water will be different.The constant is fresh water and the variable isthe salt water. You have the same type of plants,in the same type and amount of soil .
20 EXPERIMENTATION Write the step by step procedures (instructions). These procedures will assist in determining(decide) if your tested hypothesis is correct orincorrect based upon manipulation of materials.
21 MAKING AND USING MODELS You are developing a copy representing the“real world” application you’re studying.This will allow you to understand how systemswork and how they are constructed.
22 MAKING AND USING MODELS Models can be a constructed replication(3-dimensional copy),a painting, a drawing, or a diagram
23 ANALYSE Study the results / data of your experiment or investigation carefully.
