#ProjectPhenomena and the NGSS

Want to learn more about phenomena-based instruction in Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) classrooms? At the website, teachers can access an annotated database of more than 50 science phenomena, including Mercury’s Transit Across the Sun; An Ocean Predator’s Travel Patterns Across the Pacific Ocean; Magnet Interactions; The World’s Fastest Runners: Slowed Down and Up Close; and other engaging occurrences or events. Each entry features a brief description of the phenomenon, suggestions for classroom use, key Disciplinary Core Ideas, and a targeted grade level (among grades 3–12). The website also presents the criteria required for selecting phenomena useful for NGSS instruction. Once teachers are familiar with the criteria, they can submit additional phenomena to the database.
