Classroom Resources

These classroom resources, including lesson plans, book chapters, videos, simulations, and more—are compiled by NSTA curators. While these resources are not yet considered to be “fully aligned” to the NGSS, the curators provide guidance on how to adapt them. Resources that are “fully aligned” should meet the rigorous criteria of the EQuIP rubric, which means they 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.

Additional classroom resources are provided by other members of the science teaching community. NSTA invites educators to upload and share their own outstanding lesson plans, units or other resources that will help teachers work toward the vision of the NGSS.
