♦ SUMMARY: Science traditionally has been underrepresented in K-5 teaching and learning. The reasons for this are multifaceted, including emphasis on core skills of reading, writing, and math learning, but also the lack of teachers with appropriate science training. With the changing national standards – especially NGSS – science is gaining traction in K-5. The attached report, which covers K-8, is published by the National Academy of Science.
