This video makes a great phenomenon video for students to notice and wonder. It is a great opening for lessons addressing how some plant cells convert light energy into food energy. (Thank you to STEMAZing Teacher Leader Lee Ann Howell (@STEMHOWELLer) for contributing this resource to the collection.)

This Science and Engineering Practices Image Sort is a great way to introduce students to the practices and to get them thinking about what they all mean. Using either a PPT version (below) or Google Slides version (link provided below), you can have students sort the images in a breakout room or complete this activity…

Great for cross-referencing the Arizona Science Standards to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) when looking for resources from collections aligned to NGSS. S = strong alignment (same science and engineering practice, same content). P = partial alignment (different science and engineering practice, same content). NC = no correlation.

NOTE: Those these are indicated for 5th grade, they align with both 5th grade and 8th grade AzSS standards. Through exploring melting, dissolving, and chemical change, students discover that mass is conserved during all these processes. Lesson 4.1 – Conservation of Mass Students measure the mass of substances before and after melting, dissolving, and a…

NOTE: Those these are indicated for 5th grade, they best align with 8th grade AzSS standards. Students investigate the solubility, density, and other properties of solids and liquids to identify substances based on their unique characteristics. Lesson 2.1 – Using Dissolving to Identify Substances Students compare the dissolving of salt and sugar and then conduct…
