Sustainable Cashmere

These activities were created using the Next Generation Science Standards. Standards allow teachers to align their teaching towards specific learning goals and allow students to be measured on their understanding of specific content and skill objectives. WCS utilizes standards-aligned curricular materials in order to ensure that as many teachers as possible can adapt our resources for their own classrooms.

On each worksheet, we have given a few example standards that could be met by using that activity with your students. This is by no means an exhaustive list and these activities align to many more curriculum standards. We encourage you to explore your national and state standards to find connections that you can use with your students!
