Science Standards

I use the Minnesota State Science Standards in all of my instruction. 

Students use the science inquiry process as we learn science content. 

Every grade has a big engineering project that allows students to use thier own creative problem solving skills. 

Minnesota is in the process of adopting new standards that are based on the same research as the Next Generation Science Standards.  I have worked on committees at the Department of Education to prepare the new standards. 

I do not teach my units exactly the same every year.
