Physical Science Kits

For each kit, an NGSS Transition Support Document has been created. This guide is intended to provide you with ideas on how best to build student capacity to work as a scientist or engineer using the Science and Engineering Practices; on how best to think about the learning by engaging students in using the Crosscutting Concepts; and all while engaging in the content ideas that already exist within this instructional material. To access the Transition Support Document for each kit, click on the kit title.
