Welcome

Science instruction in Unit 4 Schools is constantly evolving to exemplify Best Practices for science education while striving to follow the guidelines described in the National and Illinois State Standards.

What Are the Next Generation Science Standards?
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are a new set of science standards for kindergarten through high school. The NGSS were designed with the idea that students should have a science education that they can use in their lives. It should empower students to be able to make sense of the world around them. And it should give students the critical thinking, problem solving, and data analysis and interpretation skills they can use in any career, and that will help them make decisions that affect themselves, their families, and their communities. Many states have adopted the NGSS or very similar standards.
