NGSS Curriculum for Middle School Science

Does anyone have suggestions for curriculum, kits or resources that can be purchased for a middle school(6-8) that will be implementing the NGSS? Some suggestions have included FOSS kits and Amplify. What do you use? What do you think?

Hi, Susan –

You have more options labeled “NGSS” than ever before. This is both a blessing and a curse. I’ll stop short of recommending any specific resource, but I did want to recommend that you check out a couple of tools to help you make a decision right for your students and setting.

If you’re not familiar, check out EdReports. They have a limited, but growing, number of MS resource reviews. The second tool you might review is the EQuIP rubric and accompanying materials from Achieve, Inc.

Best of luck to you,
