We believe in a science curriculum that engages students in learning through inquiry based investigations and authentic experiences.
The Carroll County Public School Elementary Science Curriculum is guided by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), there are three distinct and equally important dimensions to learning science: Core Ideas, Practices, and Crosscutting Concept.
Each dimension works with the other two to help students build a cohesive understanding of science over time in Physical Science, Life Science, Earth and Space Science, and Engineering.
The Next Generation Science Standards establish learning goals in science that will give all students the skills and knowledge they need to be informed citizens, college ready, and prepared for careers.
