We have been working on deconstructing the Next Generation Science Standards at the middle school level. The purpose for this document is to take one individual standard and organize it, into a more manageable document.
The document includes the standard, written word for word, as well as each Disciplinary Core Idea (DCI), Science and Engineering Practice, Cross Cutting Concept, and the Literacy and Math Standards that apply to the individual standard. In addition, we have turned the standard into a series of student friendly learning targets. We have provided key vocabulary we plan on using with the learning targets. There is also a "How do we plan on assessing?" component, and a place to list activities.
The document provided is for standard MS-LS1-1. You will see in the document it is named as 07-LS1-1, as Kentucky as decided to divide the standards into grades. However, the standard is word for word with the NGSS document.
The attached document is a work on progress, and as it is updated, we will update it and have it available for our purchasers.
We have the majority of the other standards completed, and wanted to receive feedback and see if this is helpful for other teachers. If feedback is good, we will continue to load our additional documents.
