Description

This bundle for Earth and Space Science for middle school NGSS covers all the standards for Middle School Earth’s Place in the Universe. Students will develop models of the Earth-Sun-Moon system, explain gravity in galaxies, and determine the scale and properties of objects in the solar system.

This Bundle Includes:

Age of the Earth

Earth, Moon, and Sun System

Gravity in Galaxies

Scale and Properties of the Solar System

 

Disciplinary core ideas of ESS1. The universe and its Stars, ESS1.B Earth and the Solar System, and ESS1.C The History of Planet Earth

NGSS MS-ESS1-1 Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.

NGSS MS ESS1-2 Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system.

MS-ESS1-3. Analyze and interpret data to determine the scale properties of objects in the solar system.

MS-ESS1-4. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence from rock strata for how the geologic time scale is used to organize Earth’s 4.6-billion-year-old history.

This bundle includes four complete units. The resource includes slide shows, hands-on labs, and activities, reading passages and comprehension questions, response sheets, interactive notebook flaps, and more.

Students will participate in investigations, make models, and use computational thinking to learn about space, the solar system, the galaxy, and the universe.

 

Each unit included in this bundle has 5-E lessons, nonfiction passages with comprehension questions, response pages, interactive notebook inserts, quizzes, answer keys, and hands-on lab activities.  Some of the units also include slideshow presentations and QR code research activities.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
