Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Curriculum Framework

The STANDARDS CORRELATION chart suggests which Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Curriculum Framework standards you can cover using PASSPORT TO THE UNIVERSE in your classroom. We hope you will discover additional standards you can use. These are the ones our Instructional Materials Development team felt most directly related to the activities contained in PASSPORT TO THE UNIVERSE.
