Developing a Scientific Model – NGSS Lesson


Categories: ,


If you’re using NGSS or in any way moving away from memorizing to doing science, this lesson is for you! Designed to cover the Science and Engineering Practice (SEP) of modeling and developing a model.


Help your student gain metaknowledge about scientific practices and modeling by introducing the purpose, benefits, and limitations of developing scientific models.


Includes a student handout that follows the presentation on:

  • what is a model
  • why are models used
  • how to evaluate a model


Several built in higher order thinking questions, examples, and a ticket out the door will ensure your students understand what a model is and why they’re used before they leave the classroom!


Your purchase secures a printable PDF. On page 2 of the PDF you will find a link to a Google Slides presentation that corresponds to the student sheet.
