Science is vitally important, but there’s no need for YOU to reinvent the wheel!
These are the latest (released 2013) fifth grade Next Generation Science Standards that will be used across the nation, reformatted and reworded in student-friendly language to meet Marzano and similar initiatives. They are the equivalent of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Science. Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) incorporating both science and those specific to engineering are included, in case your school prefers that format.
This set follows the, “I can…” format.
These are intended to be printed for posting in classrooms, in easy to read large fonts; but a checklist for student/parent/teacher use is included as well, along with a Table of Contents.
PLEASE NOTE: The need to make the language child-friendly becomes less significant as the grade level increases. Efforts were made to retain as much of the NGSS language as possible in intermediate grades, only making changes to eliminate redundancies and create less wordy phrasings for display purposes.
The listed standards should be referenced for a more in-depth understanding and original wording: http://www.nextgenscience.org/
I know how hard we teachers work, and hope this will help make your job a tiny bit easier!
