Grade 6 - Science Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE)

Note: Science Resources are developed and reviewed by educators. Be a part of our community by participating in the Resource Feedback Program (see below).

New resources are currently being added to the Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) of the Essential Toolkit within the Teacher Resource Link (TRL). SLDS is available to all public school educators in Georgia. If you are not a public educator and need access to resources, please contact Amanda Buice the Science Program Manager at abuice@doe.k12.ga.us.

All non-educators should contact GaDOE program managers of the specific content they are interested in.
