Next Generation Science Standard
In the United States, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) lay out disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts that students should master in preparation for college and careers. Through a project with Achieve, Inc. and the New York Hall of Science, Teachers TryScience is providing a growing set of lessons that reflect some of the shifts in the NGSS, along with resources that will support you in aligning your own lessons to NGSS.
