Make predictions about changes in materials or objects based on past experience.
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
predict “what will happen if...” (e.g., if play dough is left uncovered overnight; if soap is added to the water table; if the pumpkin is left in the classroom for a month).
test predictions through concrete experiences to confirm or refute them (e.g., use eye droppers to mix food colors with water or use hand egg beaters in the water table).
discuss reasons why predictions were correct or incorrect.
sort objects based on their predictions (e.g., whether they will sink or float or stick to the magnet).
