what level
Level 3 to 4 prompts

Level 4 to 5 prompts

What level?

Respond to suggestions for finding out scientific things. Put forward your own ideas about how you can find answers by investigating.

Finding basic information for yourself using books and texts provided by your teacher or parents.

Know why tests must be fair and do your own fair tests with help.

Use basic measuring equipment ~ (rulers, scales)

Look at your results and see basic relationships. e.g. “The thinner rubber bands make a higher pitch.”

Know that you can prove things by doing experiments and tests.

You can vary one factor and keep others the same so that your test is fair. You can make predictions.

You can plan your own basic investigations, tests & experiments and do them fairly. You know what to measure and how to measure.

You can see the patterns in your results. You can write basic descriptions of what happened with some reasons. You show your scientific knowledge and understanding in your writing and drawing.
