*Although this is titled "Part 2," this set of warm ups is independent from Part 1. Part 1 is not required to use this collection of warm up questions.*
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are here! This collection of daily warm up questions intentionally incorporates the NGSS Cross-Cutting Concepts into daily instruction. Start each class period off with thought provoking videos, readings, graphical analysis and more to get your students thinking more deeply about connections rather than rote memorization. Because the focus is on the cross-cutting concept, the question does not need to be content specific to your daily instruction. Use them any time during your unit! The 49 questions (9 full weeks of daily warm up questions) provided here are to be used to take a look at the general nature of science and scientific inquiry and can be incorporated into life, earth and physical science classrooms. They work well in a one-to-one environment or stand alone as projected items. I hope that you enjoy them.
