Curriculum Resources

There are two sections to this page.

  • Section One: NGSS Lessons features lessons created in partnership with our Research Experience for Teachers (RET) participants which are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards.  They are intended for classroom use, but can be modified as needed.
  • Section Two: At-Home Science Lessons are lessons modified in response to the physical distancing and cancelation of K-12 schools during the COVID-19 pandemic.  These are activities specifically written so that parents as well as educators could use them with minimal resources.  They are arranged by grade level.
