Using NGSS Practices to Explore Chemistry Concepts: Phenomenon, Modeling, and Arguing from Evidence

WEBINAR (1 hours) recorded October 17, 2018


Are you looking for phenomenon to engage your students in chemistry? Join Jessica C. Levine and Emilie Mosko, middle school physical science teachers, to see how existing chemistry curriculum can be easily modified towards an NGSS storyline. Presenters will highlight their lesson design of a groovy phenomenon to engage students in chemistry concepts such as density, heat transfer, particle motion, and phases of matter through the use of The Lava Lamp. This webinar will highlight a compilation of labs, lessons and activities, drawing from a collection of available resources, including www.middleschoolchemistry.com, and will showcase student work in modeling for understanding and arguing from evidence.
