As a science team, we will be supporting the Common Core Standards (CCSS) by including communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity in our curriculum. In addition, we regularly utilize chromebooks in the hope that all of our students will be using advanced technology to access current science information, news, scientific research, and science experts.
