Science Standards

The science content standards outline what students should know, understand, and be able to do in the natural sciences over the course of K-12 education. The National Research Council Science Content Standards for K-12 are divided into 8 categories with grade level strands for science as inquiry, physical science, life science, Earth/Space science, science/technology, science in personal/social perspective, and history /nature of science topics grouped by K-4, 5-8 and 9-12.


NETS Standards

The technology foundation standards for students (Nets Standards for Students) are divided into six broad categories. Standards within each category are to be introduced, reinforced, and mastered by students. These categories provide a framework for linking performance indicators within the Profiles for Technology Literate Students to the standards. Teachers can use these standards and profiles as guidelines for planning technology-based activities in which students achieve success in learning, communication, and life skills.

The National Education Technology Standards (NETS) will help guide you to use technology in your curriculum and lesson planning.

See the 6 NETS Standards Categories.which provide the framework for linking performance indicators to the standards.
