    Description

    This bundle for Earth and Space Science for middle school NGSS covers all the standards for Middle School Earth’s Place in the Universe. Students will develop models of the Earth-Sun-Moon system, explain gravity in galaxies, and determine the scale and properties of objects in the solar system.

    This Bundle Includes:

    Age of the Earth

    Earth, Moon, and Sun System

    Gravity in Galaxies

    Scale and Properties of the Solar System

    Disciplinary core ideas of ESS1. The universe and its Stars, ESS1.B Earth and the Solar System, and ESS1.C The History of Planet Earth

    NGSS MS-ESS1-1 Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.

    NGSS MS ESS1-2 Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system.

    MS-ESS1-3. Analyze and interpret data to determine the scale properties of objects in the solar system.

    MS-ESS1-4. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence from rock strata for how the geologic time scale is used to organize Earth’s 4.6-billion-year-old history.

    This bundle includes four complete units. The resource includes slide shows, hands-on labs, and activities, reading passages and comprehension questions, response sheets, interactive notebook flaps, and more.

    Students will participate in investigations, make models, and use computational thinking to learn about space, the solar system, the galaxy, and the universe.

    Each unit included in this bundle has 5-E lessons, nonfiction passages with comprehension questions, response pages, interactive notebook inserts, quizzes, answer keys, and hands-on lab activities.  Some of the units also include slideshow presentations and QR code research activities.

    Students will use science and engineering practices.

    • Asking Questions and Defining Problems.
    • Developing and Using Models.
    • Planning and Carrying Out Investigations.
    • Analyzing and Interpreting Data
    • Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking.
    • Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions.
    • Engaging in Argument from Evidence.
    • Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information.

    Standards

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    NGSSMS-ESS1-1
    Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons. Examples of models can be physical, graphical, or conceptual.
    NGSSMS-ESS1-3
    Analyze and interpret data to determine scale properties of objects in the solar system. Emphasis is on the analysis of data from Earth-based instruments, space-based telescopes, and spacecraft to determine similarities and differences among solar system objects. Examples of scale properties include the sizes of an object’s layers (such as crust and atmosphere), surface features (such as volcanoes), and orbital radius. Examples of data include statistical information, drawings and photographs, and models. Assessment does not include recalling facts about properties of the planets and other solar system bodies.
    NGSSMS-ESS1-2
    Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system. Emphasis for the model is on gravity as the force that holds together the solar system and Milky Way galaxy and controls orbital motions within them. Examples of models can be physical (such as the analogy of distance along a football field or computer visualizations of elliptical orbits) or conceptual (such as mathematical proportions relative to the size of familiar objects such as students’ school or state). Assessment does not include Kepler’s Laws of orbital motion or the apparent retrograde motion of the planets as viewed from Earth.
    NGSSMS-ESS1-4
    Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence from rock strata for how the geologic time scale is used to organize Earth’s 4.6-billion-year-old history. Emphasis is on how analyses of rock formations and the fossils they contain are used to establish relative ages of major events in Earth’s history. Examples of Earth’s major events could range from being very recent (such as the last Ice Age or the earliest fossils of homo sapiens) to very old (such as the formation of Earth or the earliest evidence of life). Examples can include the formation of mountain chains and ocean basins, the evolution or extinction of particular living organisms, or significant volcanic eruptions. Assessment does not include recalling the names of specific periods or epochs and events within them.
    By the end of the year, read and comprehend literary nonfiction in the grades 6–8 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range.
