Many states are adopting the Next Generation Science Standards as a common science curriculum for this and future school years. Get ahead of the game with this helpful checklist to use while teaching the standards!
This checklist is perfect to help you and your students understand the new Next Generation Science Standards for fourth grade. Each page shows a standard in NGSS terminology, then breaks it down into chunks for teaching. This will help you and your students to understand what is expected from each standard. There are six slots next to each teaching chunk to record dates taught, and one to record mastery of each skill.
Thank you for checking out this product and please check out all of our fourth grade resources!!
Clipart is from Melonheadz, Whimsy Clips, and Creative Clips.
PLEASE NOTE: I studied each standard and used the Common Core standards linked to each one, the science and engineering practices listed for each, the disciplinary core ideas, and the crosscutting concepts from the NGSS standards list. I gathered all of the information for each standard and wrote a list of learning expectations. Then I listed them in a natural learning order and made a checklist. Obviously, these are just my interpretation of the standards and not endorsed in any way by NGSS. :)
