Understandings about Scientific Inquiry
Scientific investigations involve asking and answering a question and comparing the answer with what scientists already know about the world.
Simple instruments, such as magnifiers, thermometers, and rulers, provide more information than scientists obtain using only their senses.
Scientists develop explanations using observations (evidence) and what they already know about the world (scientific knowledge). Good explanations are based on evidence from investigations.
