Though the positive impact of the integration of content areas is noted in the literature, standards-based instruction presents a challenge for integration. Develop a statement justifying the integration of math and science content for a range of grade levels in your school setting.

 For example, K-3 or 6-8. Identify the range of grade levels and at least two diverse characteristics present in your school. Include an example of what integration looks like and its benefit for student learning.  This statement should be 1 page in length and should include supporting evidence of your justification. List your references at the end of your statement.
