The National Science Education Standards encourage teachers to place less emphasis on “separating science knowledge from
science process” and instead promote the teaching of “process skills in context”. Therefore, all of the scientific processes from
the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills are embedded throughout the year and are indicated by the following icon: 
