PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an entire outline for a Middle School Earth and Space Science Class. This includes all NGSS standards MS-ESS-1, MS-ESS-2, and MS-ESS-3. There are 3 total large units, including; Earth's Place in the Universe, Earth and Human Activity, and Earth's Systems. These topics closely match those provided in the standards. Each unit is broken into subunits based on more discrete topics noted in the standards.

Please note, this is simply an outline. There are topic headings with the aligned standards. Standards are organized so that each standard (like MS-ESS-1-1) includes all the corresponding components (SEP, DCI, CCC, etc). This should help, at the very least, to organize the standards, even if you do not wish to follow this order of outline. Additionally, the related common core standards for the entire outline are provided at the end of the document.

It is very likely that all of this might not be able to be covered in one traditional school year, as this includes ALL middle school level ESS standards. I have used unit one with both 7th and 6th graders at different schools. The 7th graders seem to move a lot more quickly through it, as 6th graders have to spend a lot of time with procedural issues and learning to use computers (for virtual labs). So, at schools where you would like to focus less on the Space Science side, I would suggest moving unit 1 to the end. HOWEVER, unit one discusses rotation / revolution / orbits, which are necessary to build into the weather and climate topics in unit 2, which is something to consider.
