The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are here! This collection of five 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 five questions provided here show a sampling of questions to be used to take a look at the general nature of science and scientific inquiry. They work well in a one-to-one environment or stand alone as projected items. I hope that you enjoy them. If you like these, please take a look at the full 9 weeks of Nature of Science Themed Daily Warm-Ups with answer key that I also have available.
