NGSS-Aligned Elementary Classroom Resources from AACT

WEBINAR (7-8 PM ET) recorded March 14, 2018

As more states and schools adopt the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) or similar guidelines, teachers at every level are wondering if their current lessons meet these expectations and how to adjust their approach to make existing resources and lessons support NGSS.

This webinar highlights five AACT lesson plans for the 4th - 6th grade classrooms that align with NGSS and can easily be adapted for higher or lower grade levels. There are 16 performance expectations for 5th grade and the lessons outlines will help your students meet 13 of them. Topics include modeling molecules, plant chemistry, environmental science, water purification, and salting the roads when it snows.

All of the lessons follow the 5E model: engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate. Each includes complete alignment with NGSS and cross-disciplinary extensions. All attendees will be given access to the five lesson plans.
