    • A common vocabulary is needed to communicate about the scientific procedure.
    • A hypothesis is a testable prediction as to the outcome of a scientific investigation.
    • A well designed investigation involves the use of a written plan that identifies the materials to be used, the procedure to follow, and the variables. A plan needs to be followed to make sure all steps in an investigation are completed.
    • A scientist uses many tools when conducting an investigation.
    • Complete data makes it possible to explain the results of an investigation and compare it with the prediction.
    • When data is analyzed, the results can be communicated in a variety of ways.
    • All organisms have unique characteristics which enable them to be placed in a similar group known as their species. Plants can be placed into families based upon characteristics.
    • Living things (plants) have specific needs and go through distinct stages in a life cycle. Plants need air, water, nutrients, and light to survive. Flowering plants require pollination.
    • Living things (plants) have characteristics that can be used to categorize them; are organized into systems that are interconnected; and have interactions within and among living systems which cause changes in matter and energy.
    • Plants need air, water, nutrients, and light to survive. Living things (plants) have characteristics, requirements, and interactions that are essential to the continuation of their life cycles. Energy from the sun in the form of light and heat is necessary for plant growth.
