NGSS in NASA Wavelength Strandmap Service
Tags: SMD E/PO Community | Educator | Education Standards / Benchmarks
The AAAS strand map service in NASA Wavelength now includes related Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). When you go into a strand map, select a benchmark, and if there is a related NGSS, there will be a tab in the pop-up bubble. For example, go to the strand map on Weather and Climate, at http://strandmaps.nasawavelength.org/map.html?id=SMS-MAP-1698, use the scroll box on the bottom right side to move around the strand map - try the benchmark for grades 6-8 in about the middle of the map, "Water evaporates from the surface of the earth, rises and cools..." The first tab in the pop-up when you click on that benchmark shows a list of resources from the Wavelength collection that align to that benchmark, clicking on the NGSS tab shows related NGSS.
