Sample Interdisciplinary Connections

There are many ways that the 2020 New Jersey Student Learning Standards can be grouped to create interdisciplinary units in support of climate change education. Please note when reviewing the examples below, the standards for English language arts (K–8), mathematics (K–8) and science (K–5) are grade specific, whereas the standards for the other content areas describe expectations for students by the end of the grade band.

Districts are encouraged to review the New Jersey Student Learning Standards below to consider other groupings that can be used to create interdisciplinary climate change units.

Click on each grade band to see examples of how the NJSLS might be grouped to create an interdisciplinary unit. Each example has an overarching question, a rationale that describes the unit and standards from multiple content areas.
