NGSS Standards and How to Use Them

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are K–12 science content standards. Standards set the expectations for what students should know and be able to do. The NGSS were developed by states to improve science education for all students.

However I know self contained classroom teachers don't always have time to dive into new standards especially when ELA and Math are being tested. So I created checklists for you to be able to look at and in a glance see if you are getting the standards in.

They are also great for Content Integration - you can see the topics and quickly find books and resources to use in other subjects like Math and Reading to "fit in" more!
As you can see above the have the standard, a space for date taught, assessed and notes. I made one for every grade K-5 and there is even a bundle for your whole building. 

HERE is the link to the bundle and from there you can choose just one grade level!

Since I teach 4th grade I also created I cans for 4th grade. So I can just flip to the standard for the week or day. Click the picture below to go to those in my TPT store.

Let me know if you have any questions!
