Example text

Students can observe change and use it as evidence of interaction. As they advance from a dependence on concrete experiences to the ability to think abstractly, they identify the conditions under which interaction occurs and predict its outcome. The four major scientific concepts the SCIS program uses to elaborate the interaction viewpoint are matter, energy, organism, and ecosystem. Students' experiences and investigations in the physical science sequence are based on matter and energy; organism and ecosystem provide the framework of the life science sequence.

In the SCIS program, "interaction" refers to relations among objects or organisms that do something to one another, thereby bringing about a change. Students can observe change and use it as evidence of interaction. As they advance from a dependence on concrete experiences to the ability to think abstractly, they identify the conditions under which interaction occurs and predict its outcome.
