The Inquiry Project

The Inquiry Project takes a unique approach to a study of matter for grades 3–5, bringing together core ideas, scientific practices, and crosscutting concepts. The curriculum for each grade is built around a network of science concepts relevant to understanding matter and include ideas about material, weight, and volume. As they learn about the core idea of matter, students use scientific practices that are central to inquiry such as reasoning from evidence, building and using models, and developing explanations.
