Knuckle Down on the New Standards: MS College- and Career-Readiness Standards for Science Grades 3-5

Join other elementary teachers from across the state as we work together to explore the core elements of Mississippi’s new science standards. Along with opportunities to explore the new standards, each session in this three-part series will focus on a different crosscutting concept or theme as outlined in the Grades 3-5 Overview. Discover how to make the engineering design process applicable with several challenges, including the use of magnets and other easy access materials, how to make the best solar oven, and the concept of interdependence of systems. Participants will come away with an understanding of how science skills develop across grade levels to provide a solid foundation of learning for students.
