Welcome 1st Grade
The New Essential Standards ( NES) are a North Carolina initiative and for K-5 science we will implement those standards in 2012-2013. This year we have a "crosswalk" of the standards so you can compare NCSCOS and the NES side by side (below), The other document (below) is NES "unpacked". Each standard is broken down and explains what students must know, understand and be able to do.
