Following an investigation when implementing in the Primary Connections approach, students are supported to articulate, communicate, and debate their ideas and arguments. This supports students to develop a deep understanding of science concepts. Providing students with question starters helps to promote evidence-based discussions in the science classroom. Encourage students to frame their questions for discussion with their team members when preparing their claim/s and evidence. These questions might also be used in a similar way to support peer discussion when a team is presenting and sharing investigation findings to the class.
