Next Generation Science Standards Grade 5 Matter Unit
Teach using the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) using this fun and easy to use unit! This unit has the following qualities in mind during development:
1. Incorporate the Next Generation Science Standards
2. Use easy and cheap supplies for the labs
3. Be realistic with unit length as elementary teachers to teach lots!
4. Includes cross cutting concepts such as modeling, research, communicating, and more.
The Next Generation Science Standards Grade 5 Matter Unit includes a running PowerPoint presentation that have the lesson number on the bottom of every slide. This PowerPoint includes your pictures and discussion questions and prompts for each lesson. Then when it is lab time we included the lab master pages.
An end of unit assessment and answer key is included.
During the study students will learn from each of the Grade 5 Matter Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Students will explore particles in materials by studying some wild behavior of some candy coatings, they will learn about the Law of Conservation of Mass by making ice cream using tiny coffee creamers, they will explore chemical and physical changes using a variety of fun labs, and they will create their own designs and models.
This is a 20 day/4 week unit plus assessment if you complete all parts.
Let your students have lots of fun learning from the exciting Next Generation Science Standards! Have fun with the NGSS!
