    All grades will focus on introducing these Eight Science and Engineering Practices as we transition to the Next Generation Science Standards:

    • Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
    • Developing and using models
    • Planning and carrying out investigations
    • Analyzing and interpreting data
    • Using mathematics and computational thinking
    • Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
    • Engaging in argument from evidence
    • Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
    • Report Card
