    Teaching the NGSS can be overwhelming at times until you know how they are set up! Here you have the posters and tools needed to address the Science & Engineering Practices in your classroom.

    Each practice has a brief overview and links to a corresponding blog post to help you understand how to use it in your classroom. Use these posters in your science center, as a reinforcement visual, or to display in your classroom Makerspace. Each template is a guide to help your give students a visual representation of the tasks being asked for the rigor of the Next Generation Science Standards.

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area. Examples of structures could include umbrellas, canopies, and tents that minimize the warming effect of the sun.
    Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object. Examples of pushes or pulls could include a string attached to an object being pulled, a person pushing an object, a person stopping a rolling ball, and two objects colliding and pushing on each other. Assessment is limited to different relative strengths or different directions, but not both at the same time. Assessment does not include non-contact pushes or pulls such as those produced by magnets.
    Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live. Examples of relationships could include that deer eat buds and leaves, therefore, they usually live in forested areas; and, grasses need sunlight so they often grow in meadows. Plants, animals, and their surroundings make up a system.
