Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)-aligned Interactive Notebook foldable on LIFE CYCLE OF STARS. This foldable explores the life cycle of mid-size and massive stars. This foldable teaches students to think of mid-size stars as cars, which need a moderate amount of fuel (hydrogen) and massive stars as trucks, which need a large amount of fuel (hydrogen, helium, etc.).
Additionally, because NGSS focuses on cross-cutting concepts such as patterns and models, as well as questioning and argument, I included “What do you notice?” and “What do you wonder?” parts of the foldables for the students to reflect on each concept.
NGSS Standard included on all foldables. Intended for MS-ESS1-2, but can be used in any grade from 4-8.
