Knuckle Down on the New Standards: MS College-and Career-Readiness Standards for Science Grades K-2

Join other primary teachers from across the state as we work together to explore the core elements of Mississippi’s new science standards. Learn how to apply the engineering design process in the primary classroom with challenges such as making shadows and keeping ice solid, creating the best ramp and collecting water, and building a tower and stopping erosion. Participants will come away with an understanding of how science skills developed in the primary grades are integral in students’ future success in science learning.
