SCIENCE 21 is a K-6, standards-based science program developed from the New York State Learning Standards for Math, Science and Technology. More specifically, the SCIENCE 21 program is correlated and aligned to the key ideas, performance indicators and the major understandings that are found in the New York State Education Department's two publications, Elementary Science Core Curriculum, K-4
and Intermediate Level Science Core Curriculum, Grades 5-8. In Addition, SCIENCE 21 has now been aligned with the recently adopted Common Core State Standards.
