This is a 5 page guide for elementary school teachers that explains the main components of NGSS: disciplinary core ideas, cross-cutting concepts, science and engineering practices, and performance expectations.
NGSS is a different approach to science education. Understanding how these components work together is important so that you can implement them successfully in your classroom.
Hope this freebie
helps you get your work with NGSS started in your elementary classroom!
