    Disciplinary Core Ideas

    ESS1.A: The Universe and Its Stars

    Patterns of the apparent motion of the sun, the moon, and stars in the sky can be observed, described, predicted, and explained with models.

    ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System

    This model of the solar system can explain the eclipses of the sun and the moon. Earth’s spin axis is fixed in direction over the short-term but tilted relative to its orbit around the sun. The seasons are a result of that tilt and are caused by the differential intensity of sunlight on different areas of Earth across the year.


    Classroom and Distance Learning Ready:

    • The lessons include both Office and Google formats. The presentations are in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all lesson documents contain Word and Google Doc versions
    • This allows you to utilize these resources whether you’re teaching in-person or through distance learning
    • With one click you can create a copy of each lesson resource and add it to your Google Drive
    • On the last Google Slide is a link to a four-question Exit Ticket that you can give as homework or as a way to conclude your lesson in class.


    Remove The Stress

    • NGSS can be hard and confusing to teach
    • You’re required to teach the strand but it’s hard to wrap your head around exactly what should be taught and when
    • My daily teaching schedule and included resources will allow you to simply teach and not worry about fulfilling the standards or making sure you stay on track
