In elementary and middle school, the science TEKS are organized around these strands:

  • Scientific investigation and reasoning
  • Matter and energy
  • Force, motion, and energy,
  • Earth and space
  • Organisms and environments

In high school, the science TEKS are organized into courses, each of which contains expectations for both scientific processes and science concepts.
At each grade level and in each high school course, the introduction includes information about the content focus of the grade or course.
