PS.1. The Nature of Science: Students gain scientific knowledge by observing the natural and constructed world, performing and evaluating investigations, and communicating their findings. These principles should guide student work and be integrated into the curriculum along with the content standards on a daily basis.
PS.1.2. Plan and carry out investigation—often over a period of several class lessons—as a class, in small groups or independently.
