Science Inquiry Information and Downloads
The entire curriculum is designed to be inquiry-based; that is learning Science by doing it and learning from investigations. In addition to the daily inquiry process, the State of Oregon requires an annual Science Work Sample that is either an "Inquiry" (capital I) or an "Engineering Design" report. This page provides information for the Inquiry Report to be used for the State Work Sample.
