The Crosscutting Concepts and the Science and Engineering Practices. I now have them displayed on my classroom wall as a reminder of what we should be learning besides science content. I find it very helpful for students to see them and reflect on what they are. As we do an activity I can ask the class, “Which of the Practices or Crosscutting Concepts applies to this lesson?” I’m enjoying the discussions!
The Next Generation Science Standards will inform our curriculum moving forward, and each piece of content is matched up with one of the Crosscutting Concepts, and one of the Science and Engineering Practices. Best to get them on the wall as a daily reminder! Check out my thoughts on my website: www.STEMTeacherInspiration.com
This product is a 2-page pdf. It can be printed as-is and given as a handout for students, or it can be printed larger scale to be displayed on a classroom wall.
