Teachers using NGSS-- this one's for you! With a focus on phenomena, this bundle is tailored specifically to the Next Generation Science Standards, Science & Engineering Practices, and crosscutting concepts.


I am offering this resource so 5th grade teachers using the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) can receive a discount on Science Penguin purchases in a GROWING BUNDLE. Because this is a GROWING bundle, not all resources are included, nor are there estimated completion dates. All resources included can be purchased individually.

Explicitly teaching 5th grade science content vocabulary just got simpler! Instead of looking for examples, images, and definitions on your own, the work is done for you for 138 key terms.

Full Units:

Units are phenomena-based and follow the 5E Model. You'll find investigations, original text, video clips, CER examples, models, quizzes, and vocabulary cards.


Start with your study of what plants need. Rather than learning facts about plants, students figure out what plants need to survive.

Students figure out how they can determine the identity of an unknown substance.

Chemical Change

Use simple investigations to explore chemical reactions. Students figure out how mixing two substances can form a new substance.

Conservation of Matter

This lesson will help you anchor student learning about conservation of matter. Rather than learning facts about matter, students conduct investigations to figure out that matter is conserved.
