7th Grade AzSS vs NGSS Planning Guide

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.

ACS Inquiry in Action: Chapter 4 – Conservation of Mass

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…

ACS Inquiry in Action: Chapter 2 – Substances Have Characteristic Properties

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…
