Any student investigation may involve a variety of skills


The combination, sequence and synthesis of these skills will change depending on the purpose of the investigation.

Teacher reflection

  • These skills include focusing and planning; information gathering; processing and interpreting; and reporting. Do all investigations need to contain all these skills, or can an activity focus on one particular skill, for example, processing and interpreting?
  • Do some investigations better suit one specific skill? If so, what are some examples?
  • How can teachers identify the skills that their students need more experience with?
