Description

Class Experience

Topics and vocabulary terms are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) (https://www.nextgenscience.org/) and Common Core English Language Arts Standards (CCELA) (http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy). 

_______ 
Next Generation Science Standards

Crosscutting Concepts (Middle School)
() Cause and Effect (LS1-8) Cause and effect relationships may be used to predict phenomena in natural systems. 
() Systems and System Models (LS1-3) Systems may interact with other systems; they may have sub-systems and be a part of larger complex systems.
() Structure and Function (LS1-2) Complex and microscopic structures and systems can be visualized, modeled, and used to describe how their function depends on the relationships among its parts, therefore complex natural structures/systems can be analyzed to determine how they function. 

_______ 
Common Core ELA (6-8)

Key Ideas and Details:
(RST.6-8.1) Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts.
(RST.6-8.3) Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks.

Integration of Knowledge and Ideas:
(RST.6-8.7) Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
