9- 12 Science
Science in LKSD incorporates the 3-dimensional model of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Our secondary courses are a blend of learning new science content and applying this knowledge through activities that reinforce science and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts such as mathematics, writing, and communication through the application of hands-on activities. Our secondary science curriculum is unique in that the CK-12 content was edited by the LKSD curriculum committee to place-base the content wherein we embedded local images and local context. All texts meet the Alaska Content Standards and NGSS standards.
