NGSS Science and Engineering Practices

Unpack the NGSS standards with this fun booklet!

14 pages cover the basics of the NGSS practices of scientists and engineers:

  1. Asking Questions and Defining Problems
  2. Developing and Using Models
  3. Planning and Carrying Out Investigations
  4. Analyzing and Interpreting Data
  5. Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking
  6. Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions
  7. Engaging in Argument from Evidence
  8. Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information

Here’s an example of a poster made by one of those groups:
