Relationship to the National Science Education Standards

This mission aligns with two standards identified in the NSES: science as inquiry and science in personal and social perspectives. The chart below identifies how the mission aligns with each of these standards.

Science as Inquiry
Levels K–4 How Mission Is Aligned
Abilities necessary to do scientific inquiry Students go through a series of steps in the process of scientific inquiry: developing a hypothesis, completing an experiment to test their hypothesis, and drawing conclusions.
Science in Personal and Social Perspectives
Levels K–4 How Mission Is Aligned
Personal health Students observe the unhealthy residue that tobacco leaves. They discuss how this residue is left in the lungs and other parts of the respiratory system and the impact it has on the health of smokers. In the future, students can refer back to this information to make wise decisions about the personal habits that affect their health.
