Pattern-seeking enquiries involve children making measurements or observations to explore situations where there are variables that they can’t easily control. In these enquiries, children are trying to answer ‘big questions’ by identifying patterns in the measurements and observations they record. These types of enquiries may be preliminary tests that lead on to more systematic enquiries, such as fair tests or comparative tests.
