Correlations to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

This learning activity covers the following Earth and Space Science (ESS), Environmental Systems, and Aquatic Science TEKS. We suggest that the teacher select a few TEKS to emphasize during the activities rather than attempt to address them all. The high school TEKS are available on the Texas Education Agency web site.

Below are tables quick-referencing the TEKS for each applicable science discipline.

*This activity does not correlate with IPC or 8th grade science TEKS.


Correlation to the National Science Education Standards for Grades 9-12

The Standards for Science Content outline what students should know, understand, and be able to do in natural science. Complete information can be found at the NSTA website. Below are tables for quick-referencing the National Science Education Standards addressed by this activity.
