This document contains all of the information found in the Next Generation Science Standards for 7th grade, Life Science. The way that the NGSS are written can make your "head hurt." This document has simplified the information for teacher use.
The document also has links to science content for the individual standards - for your grade level and freely available on OER. The links (organized by individual standard) come from the National Science Teachers' website, PBS, Better Lesson, etc. - credible links. You can use these links to teach science concepts until science materials become available. The links contain highly engaging lessons, videos, etc., that can be used immediately.
At the end of the document you will find a standards' map that places all the standards in an easily read (Birds' Eye View) format. The map contains the standards, core ideas, crosscutting concepts, information about assessment, etc.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THERE ARE WAYS THAT I COULD MAKE THIS DOCUMENT MORE USEFUL FOR YOU. MY AIM IS TO HELP TEACHERS TEACH!
