Science for all

The most recent NSTA K-12 journals have suggestions, lesson ideas, and resources for helping all students engage with the disciplinary content, crosscutting concepts, and science and engineering practices that make up the NGSS.

Science & ChildrenStability and Change

Although this may sound like an oxymoron (“the more things change, the more they stay the same?”), this is actually one of the NGSS crosscutting concepts. It’s one that would be appropriate for many topics in the general sciences: Newton’s Laws, equilibrium, food webs, body systems, weather and climate, plate tectonics, other systems studies.

Science Scope — Gathering, Analyzing, and Interpreting Data           

The lessons described here (many of which illustrate the 5E model), illustrate the integration of NGSS disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts with science and engineering concepts related to the collection, analysis, interpretation, and communication of data. The articles feature traditional methods as well as technology software and apps.
