NGSS

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are based on the "Framework K–12 Science Education" that was created by the National Research Council. They have three dimensions that are integrated in instruction at all levels. The first is core ideas, which consists of specific content and subject areas. The second is science and engineering practices. Students are expected not just to learn content but to understand the methods of scientists and engineers. The third is cross-cutting concepts: key underlying ideas that are common to a number of topics. The NGSS give equal emphasis to engineering design and to scientific inquiry. In addition, they are aligned with the Common Core State Standards by grade and level of difficulty. The standards describe "performance expectations" for students in the area of science and engineering. They define what students must be able to do in order to show competency

Thank you to all the families who watched our Lab animals over the Summer break! If you would like to take an animal home to feed and love over one of the school breaks, please send a note in to Mrs. Malloy in the science lab (include your child's name, grade, teacher and a parent contact name and number.) This is a great way to see how your son/daughter cares for an animal before you invest in your own!
