Planning Guides/Pacing Calendars

Planning Guides are designed to assist teachers in pacing the instruction of content within their chosen science curriculum. They are suggested timeframes.  If your school is using the “blend” option, first refer to the list of core curriculum science materials and then to the publisher for the particular unit of study being taught during the time frame.
