With what standard does this resource align?
This resource will support students moving towards the mastery of the Next Generation Science Standards.
NGSS MS-PS1-1: Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
NGSS MS-Science & Engineering Practices: Developing and using models: Modeling in 6–8 builds on K–5 and progresses to developing, using and revising models to describe, test, and predict more abstract phenomena and design systems.
NGSS MS-PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter: Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms.
NGSS MS-Cross-Cutting Concepts: Scale, Proportion, and Quantity: Time, space, and energy phenomena can be observed at various scales using models to study systems that are too large or too small.
NGSS HS-PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter: Each atom has a charged substructure consisting of a nucleus, which is made of protons and neutrons, surrounded by electrons.
Is there prep involved?
Students will need access to scissors. Colored pencils are optional, but strongly suggested. A key with suggested definitions is included; however, this resource does not include a PowerPoint slide show for teacher led note taking.
