CO Science Topic Arrangement Breakdown

CO Science Topic Arrangement Breakdown.docx

This year Colorado is changing their science standards to align with Next Generation Science Standards. These new standards incorporate more 21st Century Thinking Skills and Practices. Also, there is more incorporation of engineering and problem solving practices. At the elementary school level, this changes the topic arrangement and order from previous standard arrangements. This also means that at each grade level depth is built upon life, physical, and earth and space standards, rather different than the very separate units seen in the past.
