There are new standards in science called Essential Standards.
For specific information on the objectives for grades 6-8, please link to the DPI website at http://www.ncpublicschools.org/docs/acre/standards/new-standards/science/6-8.pdf
In addition, science teachers will also incorporate Common Core standards through various reading and writing assignments in science.
