AfterSchool KidzScience, Correlation to Next Generation Science Standards

A correlation of AfterSchool KidzScience to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The National Research Council (NRC) identified eight scientific and engineering practices that are an essential part of science learning. In addition to scientific and engineering practices, the performance expectations in the NGSS describe crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas. Every AfterSchool KidzScience kit is intentionally designed to focus on a set of science content learning goals appropriate for out-of-school time.
