30 Days worth of Next Generation Science Standards engineering challenges.
Each challenge lasts three days. There are 10 challenges. There is also an option to extend each challenge to last up to five days. That would provide you with 50 days of NGSS engineering challenges.
This item was written with Scott MacMillan 2016 California State Finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching (PAEMST). He is also a Science Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) who develops and teaches NGSS labs and delivers NGSS professional development district-wide.
These lessons are teacher and student-friendly.
Ties to the common core state standards in ELA, math and ELD can be made with each lesson. Links to the Standards for Mathematical Practices can also be made.
Remember that the Disciplinary Core Ideas in Engineering, Technology and the Application of Science for Kindergarten through 2nd grade are all the same. So, this piece really does apply to each grade level.
We hope you and your students enjoy! We'll be coming out with a number of other NGSS products soon.
