At Lincoln Middle School we use a trimester guide to show what standards we will be teaching each trimester. This guide is unique to our building as we developed it ourselves. Every grade level teaches all 3 branches of science. In 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science classes there is one trimester of physical, life, as well as earth & space science. We have shifted standards per grade level so that there is a natural flow from grade level to grade level.
