Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were released in 2013 and are slowly being adopted by states across the county. The standards are "rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education" (NGSS, 2013).
Connect Science includes lessons about energy and natural resources, topics that are highlighted in NGSS. Click on the links below for more background on energy literacy and teaching about energy.
