The New 2017 Change to the 6th Grade Utah Science SEEd Core and Resources Available

The current 6-8 Science Core SEEd Standards are available at the website below. They went into effect the 2017-18 school year.

Below is the same 2017 6-8 Utah Science Core SEEd Standards booklet that can also be downloaded below along with other resources. Please notice that the recent adoption changed the document slightly for grades 6-8 including a new introduction and adding the Disciplinary Core Idea (DCI) codes for each standard. However, none of the strand introductions, strands, or standards changed. (Read the new introduction for more details and explanation).

The Revised 2020-21 Open Education Resource Book (better know as OER Books) for 6th Grade, written by the State of Utah, is now available for downloading, printing, and purchasing.  To go to this link, Click Here.
