Abstract

We have compiled the K–8 core standards in astronomy for 48 states and the District of Columbia. Astronomy coverage in state curricula varies broadly from state to state, both in quantity and in content. Comparing these core standards between states and with the National Research Council (NRC) astronomy core standards gives interesting information for outreach professionals building curriculum materials for national distribution. Although the NRC standards provide a solid starting point for curriculum development, most states expand their astronomy coverage beyond the NRC topics.
