NH.SPS1. Science Process Skills: Scientific Inquiry and Critical Thinking Skills
S:SPS1:8:1.1. Making Observations and Asking Questions: Students will apply skills from previous grades and use appropriate tools to accurately collect and record both qualitative and quantitative data gathered through observations (e.g., temperature probes, electronic balances, spring scales, microscopes, stop watches).
S:SPS1:8:3.2. Conducting Scientific Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and use appropriate tools to gather data as part of an investigation (e.g., ruler, meter stick, thermometer, spring scale, graduated cylinder, calipers, balance, probes, microscopes).
S:SPS1:8:3.3. Conducting Scientific Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and follow the teacher's instructions in performing experiments, following all appropriate safety rules and procedures.
S:SPS1:8:4.1. Representing and Understanding Results of Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and use appropriate tools (including computer hardware and software) to collect, organize, represent, analyze and explain data.
NH.SPS4. Science Process Skills: Science Skills for Information, Communication and Media Literacy
S:SPS4:8:1.3. Information and Media Literacy: Students will apply skills from previous grades and use appropriate tools to analyze and synthesize information (e.g., diagrams, flow charts, frequency tables, bar graphs, line graphs, stem-and-leaf plots) to draw conclusions and implications based on investigations of an issue or question.
S:SPS4:8:3.1. Critical Thinking and Systems Thinking: Students will apply skills from previous grades and execute steps of scientific inquiry to engage in the problem-solving and decision making processes.
