NGSS & STEM Activities

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) programs offer new, innovative methods for learning about science. Rather than being told what scientists know, students discover science through their own investigations and explorations. Performance expectations are created from an integration of disciplinary core ideas (science content), crosscutting concepts (like patterns, cause and effect, and stability and change), and science and engineering practices. Acorn Naturalists has created a series of easy to use, grade-specific Nature Circles® NGSS cards, designed for educators and include notations citing the specific NGSS standards each activity addresses. Six versions are available, each one is grade specific (K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade). Grade-specific supplemental blackline masters can also be downloaded from our website. Many additional STEAM and NGSS aligned resources are also found here.
