Product Description
Help your students with the Next Generation Science Standards using the Science and Engineering Practices! These pages will work to engage students with common scientific practices while fitting in with other science work in your classroom!

NGSS Science and Engineering Practices
1) Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
2) Developing and using models
3) Planning and carrying out investigations
4) Analyzing and interpreting data
5) Using mathematics and computational thinking
6) Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
7) Engaging in argument from evidence
8) Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

The Next Generation Science Standards are written with the aim of having students do science and engineering work. The activities in this product tie in wonderfully as great pencil-and-paper practice. These can be used to introduce scientific ideas, add to a discussion of practices, or to fill in for a day when an experiment just won’t work in your classroom!

NGSS and NSTA documents were very helpful in making this pack of activities. They explains the different practices and gives grade-band specific ideas for what students should know. NGSS teaches us that it is important to use these practices frequently in our science time but also to teach the practices explicitly in our instruction of science and engineering.

I originally made these activities with 2nd graders in mind, as I’m a 2nd grade teacher. It is not specific to 2nd grade standards at all, however. The practice addressed are the same for all grades. Please look at the preview to see if this product would match the level your students are at.

The product contains the following:
Introduction and standards — pages 1-3
NGSS practice pages — pages 4-29
Key to practice pages — pages 30-56
Image sources and credits — page 57

Thanks so much!
