These resources are used to help develop lesson plans which include Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. Each month as we meet with the teacher cadre, we will develop lesson plans for elementary grade levels. As we finish these lessons we will post them for your use. Please email me as you use the lessons so that we have an idea how many teachers are accessing the resources.
The above site has a wonderful PDF on Project-Based Learning.
Science Articles to use for Informational Text and Close Reading as you develop your own lessons. Remember to be responsible as you find text for students as some articles are for older students and adults. Please read all articles prior to handing them out to students.
Engineering Sites to help you find activities that are challenging for your students. After students learn and understand scientific content, they will need to learn how to utilize their knowledge through an engineering design process. Although we do not yet have a set design process this first site below may help you get started with a graphic organizer for design.
