Appendix F (Science and Engineering Practices) of the NGSS asks us to teach our students how to plan and carry out investigations, but that's about all the direction we get. So, I've developed a series of eleven videos and accompanying worksheets that support this topic. The videos are light-hearted, example-filled, and will provide your students with a clear means for planning and carrying out a scientific investigation.
This is lesson 1 of an eleven part series on Scientific Practices, which supports Appendix F (Science and Engineering Practices) of the NGSS.  This lesson emphasizes that scientific investigations are often sparked by curiosity, which results in a question that can be answered using the scientific method.
This is lesson 2 of an eleven part series on Scientific Practices (click for bundle), which supports Appendix F (Science and Engineering Practices) of the NGSS. Lesson 2 dives into the differences between observations and inferences and gives lots of great examples.

This lesson is an introduction to Isaac Newton's three laws of motion. This lesson supports MS-PS2 (Forces and Interactions) of the NGSS. Kids are asked a series of thought-provoking questions as they explore the videos and links. All "How About Science?" lessons include supporting handouts, answer keys, online quizzes and activities, as well as links to the associated NGSS standards.
This three-lesson unit includes an introduction to energy and energy forms, energy transfers and transformations and variables that effect kinetic and potential energy, like height, mass and speed. These lessons can also be purchased individually. This unit supports MS-PS3 (Energy) of the NGSS.
This lesson is an introduction to forces, including types of forces, balanced and unbalanced forces, net force and more. This lesson supports MS-PS2 (Forces and Interactions) of the NGSS.

The Life Science Unit contains lessons on Cells, Genetics: An Introduction, Genetics: The Basics, Asexual Reproduction and Evolution, all of which are available for purchase individually. These lessons support MS-LS1-1 (From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes), MS-LS3 (Growth, Development and Reproduction of Organisms), MS-LS3-2 (Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits) and MS-LS4 (Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity) of the NGSS.
This lesson is an introduction to evolution, diving into concepts like variation, natural selection, mutations and many more. Evidence for evolution is discussed in depth. It is part of a five-lesson series on Life Science  and supports MS-LS4 (Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity) of the NGSS.
This lesson compares and contrasts sexual and asexual reproduction and includes a challenge activity about cloning Mimi the mouse. It is part of a five-lesson series on Life Science. This lesson supports MS-LS3-2 (Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits) of the NGSS.

This is an introduction to Isaac Newton and his first law of motion, also called the Law of Inertia. Supporting documents include a handout for students and an answer key. Students may work independently if everyone has an internet connected device. If not, the video can be projected and the handout filled out as a group. This is a great way to create discussion and make sure everyone understands before moving on. This lesson supports NGSS standard MS-PS2-2.

Under normal light, the Atomic Glow coloring turns the water a cool   greenish-yellow color. But Atomic Glow gets its name from the color that   appears when you flip on the black light. When Atomic Glow coloring is   exposed to black light, the material actually glows an eerie green color   that looks… well… atomic, as the kids say. 4th Grade Activities, 5th Grade Science, Science Kits, Curriculum Standards, Common Core Curriculum
