The crosscutting concepts found in the Next Generation Science Standards are unifying concepts in STEM that allow your students to think and speak like scientists and engineers. This bundle includes a graphic organizer for each of the crosscutting concepts that can be used with almost any content. They empower your students to internalize what they are learning and make connections to the real world. In addition, the bundle includes a set of posters and conversation cards that contain sentence stems that allow students to write and speak about big ideas in STEM. These sentence starters may be used in a variety of contexts, such as when students are making observations in the natural world or in lab settings, while viewing data, analyzing models, etc.
Big idea: Crosscutting concepts are scientific thinking tools that provide a framework for students to make connections to big ideas in STEM.
