A consortium of 26 states and other science groups created the Next Generation Science Standards. Many states plan on adopting them in the coming years. The standards are organized into three dimensions: disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and cross cutting concepts.

Scijinks can help educators build lesson plans that align with the Next Generation Science Standards. Use the tool below to search for SciJinks content that matches different elements of these new science standards.
