Knuckle Down on the New Elementary Science Standards
Join elementary teachers from across the state as we work together to explore the core elements of Mississippi’s new science standards. During this two-day session, K-5 science teachers will engage in the engineering design process, discuss cross-cutting concepts, explore the history of science, and share ideas about meeting the expectations of the 2018 Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards for Science. Participants will gain an understanding of how science skills are developed across the elementary grade levels to provide a solid foundation of learning for students.
