A Recommended Science Competency Continuum for Grades K to 6 for Pennsylvania Schools.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Div. of Arts and Sciences.
This continuum is designed to be used as a guide to aid science educators, elementary teachers, administrators, and others in developing elementary school science curricula. It is divided into five major competency areas: (1) processes of science; (2) biological science; (3) physical science; (4) earth and space science; and (5) attitudes (toward classwork, interests and careers, personal use of science, oneself, and science and society). Each competency area is divided into specific subgroups with each subgroup referenced to two or more competency indicators or expected student behaviors. Each indicator is designated by a letter in a grade level column (K-3 and 4-6) which suggests the level at which the competency may be introduced (I), where it should be developed for comprehension (D), and where it should be reinforced (R). Information on how to use this continuum is included. (JN)
