Next Generation Science Standards Now What? Arkansas Department of Education
The Foundation Available as a free download at National Academies Press
Children are born investigators Understanding builds over time Science and Engineering require both knowledge and practice Connecting to students’ interests and experiences is essential Focusing on core ideas and practices Promoting equity
Framework Vision Students, over multiple years of school, actively engage in scientific and engineering practices and apply crosscutting concepts to deepen their understanding of the core ideas in these fields.
The Framework establishes three dimensions of science learning: • Scientific and Engineering Practices • Crosscutting Concepts • Disciplinary Core Ideas
1. Asking questions (science) and defining problems (engineering) 2. Developing and using models 3. Planning and carrying out investigations 4. Analyzing and interpreting data 5. Using mathematics, information and computer technology, and computational thinking 6. Constructing explanations (science) and designing solutions (engineering) 7. Engaging in argument from evidence 8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
Patterns • Cause and effect • Scale, proportion, and quantity • Systems and system models • Energy and matter • Structure and function • Stability and change
Disciplinary Core Ideas • Physical Science • Life Science • Earth and Space Science • Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science
Physical Science • PS1: Matter and Its Interactions • PS2: Motion and Stability • PS3: Energy • PS4: Waves and Their Applications
Life Science • LS1: From Molecules to Organisms • LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics • LS3: Heredity • LS4: Biological Evolution
Earth and Space Science • ESS1: Earth’s Place in the Universe • ESS2: Earth’s Systems • ESS3: Earth and Human Activity
Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science • ETS1: Engineering Design • ETS2: Links Among Engineering, Technology, Science, and Society
Not a separate treatment of “content” and “inquiry” • Designed to help students develop a wide-ranging understanding of science • Moving away from inch deep and mile wide Core Ideas Crosscutting Concepts Practices

It is important to note that these standards are meant to complement the science standards, not replace them. http://www.corestandards.org
NS.1.5.1: Make accurate observations • NS.1.5.5: Communicate results and conclusions from scientific inquiry • PS.5.5.2: Conduct scientific investigations on physical properties of objects • ESS 10.5.4: Distinguish between mass and weight
