Joshua 10 includes compelling scientific phenomena that can be used to engage students in learning science and engineering. The activities and questions provided here were prepared by the author with contributions from teaching colleagues and readers. Questions and activities are listed loosely in the sequence of the story and reference performance expectations in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The topics range across an integrated science curriculum from which discipline-specific questions can be selected.
You will find many other authentic scientific phenomena throughout the story, though some are beyond the scope of secondary school curricula.
