Introduce NGSS with this engaging project! Students work through the 14 page booklet which introduces the 8 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

Afterwards, you’ll have the option to break students into groups. Each group will be assigned one practice to explore further, and the team will create a poster. A rubric is included for this. (Example in preview file.)
