FAQs*:

Does it have to be used as is, or can it be used as a supplement? This lesson can be used as is, or can supplement your existing curriculum.

Is this product student-centered? This package contains tasks and a lesson sequence that are for teachers ready to explore NGSS and try inquiry-based learning. The lesson in this product is designed to put the learning in the hands of the students while the teacher is the facilitator; therefore, it is rigorous in nature. (If you are new to NGSS and/or the 5 Es inquiry-based lesson sequence, feel free to message me for more information to see if this product is the right fit for you and your students.)

What is the lesson plan based on? It is based on the following:

1) NGSS standards and ELA CCSS standards.

2) Inquiry-based learning: This encourages minds-on/hands-on learning.


3) The 5 Es:
Step 1: Engage
Step 2: Explore
Step 3: Explain
Step 4: Elaborate 
Step 5: Evaluate 
(These steps help with the inquiry process.)


4) Cross-curricular aspects (Reading and Writing aspects are intertwined.) 


5) 3-Dimensional Learning required by NGSS:
1. Science and Engineering Practices: These are thinking about and doing science.
2. Core Ideas: These are what we traditionally think of as content/facts.
3. Crosscutting Concepts: Students should be looking for these as they complete the lessons.

Does this product contain worksheets and tests? You will not find traditional tests and worksheets with this product since the NGSS standards are heavy on inquiry-based learning. (See the lesson's objective and what's included.)

Are facilitation tips included? The lesson plan included in this product has a detailed lesson sequence, while the 5 Es facilitation tips give more information about the inquiry-process and general facilitation tips for teachers. There are also facilitation tips for establishing and maintaining appropriate student discourse. (If you decide to purchase, you can always message me throughout your implementation of the lesson. I've went through the journey with my kiddos and I'm more than happy to share/help in whatever way I can. It can be daunting switching from teacher-centered to student-centered learning at first, but I now fully enjoy the student-centered inquiry-based facilitation model.)
