Within your collaborative group, locate three separate science lesson plans from different grade levels that are aligned to the same discipline and core idea across the NGSS.
In a 150-200 word discussion:
Deconstruct the lesson plans and describe the components within the lesson plans that reflect how the students are actually engaging in science practices: observing, classifying, inferring, measuring, communicating, predicting, hypothesizing, and/or experimenting. Deconstruct how the lessons engage the students in science and engineering practices from NGSS:
- Using mathematics and computational thinking
- Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
Analyze and detail how the lessons progress regarding depth of knowledge and engagement in science and engineering practices, either following or not following the demands of the NGSS and its performance expectations. Provide links to the lessons.
