Students actively participate in determining whether a physical change or a chemical change occurred in four different events. This informative site encourages students to collect data as they investigate before drawing conclusions.
In this simulation, students must read the given instructions to locate items in a scene using the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared spectrum of light. Flash is required, sound is optional.
- Different kinds of matter exist and many of them can be either solid or liquid, depending on temperature. Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties. (2-PS1-1)
- Different properties are suited to different purposes. (2-PS1-2),(2-PS1-3)
- A great variety of objects can be built up from a small set of pieces. (2-PS1-3)
Next Generation Science Standards is a multi-state effort to create new education standards that are “rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.”
Our team from Temple University has developed this resource for all K-12 students and teachers of science. These vetted learning tools align to the NGSS. Find one we should include? Just fill out the form.
