The Science Inquiry Skills strand comprises of the five sub-strands. This TPL day will focus on three of the five sub-strands, these are:

  • Questioning and predicting – key abilities include identifying and constructing questions that can be investigated scientifically, proposing hypotheses and suggesting possible outcomes.
  • Planning and conducting –key abilities include making decisions about how to investigate or solve a problem and carrying out an investigation, including the collection of data.
