8th Grade earth Science Goal
Make it your #1 goal to take your students on an adventure through the entire Catastrophic Events inquiry kit. While the NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) are important, taking your students through the Catastrophic Events Inquiries is a priority. Why? Because walking through Catastrophic Events with your middle school students will leave them with a great taste for science and an eagerness to "get their hands on" more science in 9th grade. The Catastrophic Events labs also inherently make connections to the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices, Performance Objectives and DCIs. Best Wishes for a fun year of engaging your students through all the great labs in Catastrophic Events!
