The resources on this page are intended to support implementation of Idaho’s Science Standards approved in 2018. These standards ask students to think and act like scientists by engaging in the heart of science – INQUIRY. This paradigm shift requires students to demonstrate command of knowledge of scientific principles, processes, and content by performing as scientists do.
