Science Standards
The Nature of Science and Technology
3.1.4 Discuss the results of investigations and consider the explanations of others.
3.1.5 Demonstrate the ability to work cooperatively while respecting the ideas of others and communicating one's own conclusion about findings.
4.1.3 Explain that clear communication is an essential part of doing science.
4.1.4 Demonstrate how measuring instruments can be used to gather accurate information for making scientific comparisons of objects and events.
5.1.1 Recognize and describe that results of similar scientific investigations may turn out differently because of inconsistencies in methods, materials and observations.
5.1.3 Explain that doing science involves many different kinds of work and engages men, women, and children of all ages and backgrounds.

Scientific Thinking
3.2.2 Measure and mix dry and liquid materials in prescribed amounts, following reasonable safety precautions.
3.2.3 Appropriately use simple tools, such as clamps, rulers, hand lenses, and other technology, such as calculators and computers to help solve problems.
3.2.7 Ask "How do you know?" in appropriate situations and attempt reasonable answers when others ask the same question.
4.2.7 Identify better reasons for believing something than "Everybody knows that." or "I just know" and discount such reasons when given by others.
5.2.7 Read and follow step-by-step instructions when learning new procedures.
5.2.8 Recognize when and describe that comparisons might not be accurate because some of the conditions are not kept the same.

The Mathematical World
3.5.1 Select and use appropriate measuring units.
4.5.5 Explain how reasoning and uncertainty can be distorted by strong feelings.
5.5.1 Make precise and varied measurements and specify the appropriate units.
5.5.7 Explain that predictions can be based on what is known about the past, assuming that conditions are similar.
