NGSS Hub

Full alignment means that the resources are three-dimensional in nature, have coherence across lessons and units, provide a number of important instructional supports, and provide methods to monitor student progress. Work is currently underway to develop exemplar lessons and resources that meet this vision. Welcome to PALS. Lawton Public Schools. Lesson Plans, Teacher Guides and Online Resources for Educators.

Blick on Flicks

We all love watching movies. But we also love science. And sometimes the two don't mix! To help us sort the good science from the bad in movies and other visual media, Jacob Clark Blickenstaff, PhD, provides expert commentary, pointing out where the physics is stretched, the chemistry fudged, or the biology twisted on behalf of the story—without losing sight of the fact that movies are meant to entertain. Jacob helps turn "bad science" into teachable science for middle level and high school students. Project Materials - EYF Ohio. TeachEngineering.org provides peer reviewed projects and lesson plans.

As part of its efforts, the Institute publishes free science education materials on a range of topics. We encourage you to consider the environment and use our materials in their electronic forms. NSDL.org - National Science Digital Library. STEM Mom: Lessons. These are my posts that provide information on STEM labs. I often provide teacher with implementation tips in the post, and then include a printable student handout.

I hope you find these helpful! While I prefer for labs to integrate the different sciences along with STEM topics, I went ahead and organized my labs based on the class/topic in which the lab might most likely be used. But when looking around, be sure to look in all the categories! Biology Labs. Teacher Resources — Reconstructors - About The Series. About The Series Students learn about the health effects of drugs of abuse while covering substantial neuroscience content. The series consists of three independent web adventures: In each adventure, players help solve a drug-related case or problem. They gather scientific evidence, collect and interpret data, conduct laboratory experiments, and consult with experts to solve the case.

Teacher Resources — CSI: The Experience - About The Series. About The Series Students learn what it takes to be a forensic scientist. The games are based on the popular CBS show CSI, but prior knowledge of the television series is not required. 2009 Interactive Media Award. Learningscience.org. Basic Skill Practice Games.

Trading Card Creator. The Trading Card tool gives students an alternative way to demonstrate their literacy knowledge and skill when writing about popular culture texts or real world examples. This interactive allows students to create their own trading card about a real or fictional person, place, object, event, or abstract concept. These cards are can be used with any type of book students are reading or subjects that they are studying, and make for an excellent prewriting exercise for students who are writing narrative stories and need to consider characters, setting, and plot.

Specific prompts guide student through the various types of cards, expanding students' thinking from the basic information and description of the topic to making personal connections to the subject. The save capability gives students a way to work on a draft of their card and come back to it to rework and revise as necessary, and to save their finished product to share with friends and family.
