Each resource inside this bundle was handpicked to cover all aspects of the MS-PS2 NGSS (MS-PS2-1 to MS-PS2-5). The resources found inside will ensure your students fulfill each requirement of the standard and keep them interested and engaged throughout. A description of how each standard is covered is broken down below. This bundle will save you time and money, the two things every teacher needs more of. There are over 75 classroom-tested resources included which individually would cost over $250. You'll save 60% by purchasing them through this bundle not to mention tens or even hundreds of hours of prep time.

Here are additional NGSS bundles I have prepared:
MS PS2 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
MS PS2-1: Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.
Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.
MS PS2-2: Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
Emphasis is on balanced (Newton’s First Law) and unbalanced forces in a system, qualitative comparisons of forces, mass and changes in motion (Newton’s Second Law), frame of reference, and specification of units.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to forces and changes in motion in one-dimension in an inertial reference frame and to change one variable at a time. The assessment does not include the use of trigonometry.
MS PS2-3: Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.
Examples of devices that use electric and magnetic forces could include electromagnets, electric motors, or generators. Examples of data could include the effect of the number of turns of wire on the strength of an electromagnet, or the effect of increasing the number or strength of magnets on the speed of an electric motor.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment about questions that require quantitative answers is limited to proportional reasoning and algebraic thinking.
MS PS2-4: Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects.
Examples of evidence for arguments could include data generated from simulations or digital tools; and charts displaying mass, strength of interaction, distance from the Sun, and orbital periods of objects within the solar system.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include Newton’s Law of Gravitation or Kepler’s Laws.
MS PS2-5: Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.
Examples of this phenomenon could include the interactions of magnets, electrically-charged strips of tape, and electrically-charged pith balls. Examples of investigations could include first-hand experiences or simulations
Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to electric and magnetic fields, and limited to qualitative evidence for the existence of fields.
