NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) uses a progression of the Science and Engineering Practices starting in Kindergarten throughout grade twelve. One very important standard is “engaging in argument from evidence”. Each grade level builds on the previous level. The following are excerpts from http://ngss.nsta.org/Practices .
Engaging in argument from evidence in grades 6–8 build on K–5 experiences and progresses to constructing a convincing argument that supports or refutes claims for either explanations or argument from evidence, and in grades 9–12 students will build on K–8 experiences and progress to using appropriate and sufficient evidence and scientific reasoning to defend and critique claims and explanations about the natural and designed world(s).
