    Earth Science Week Toolkits:

    The New Jersey Geological and Water Survey is again providing New Jersey Earth and Space Science Teachers with Earth Science Week Toolkits to the first fifty teachers to request one. The toolkits are packed with high quality resources that can be used not only Earth Science Week, October 11-17, 2020, but during the rest of the school year as well. This year's theme is Earth Materials in our Lives and is a perfect fit for those implementing the Next Generation Science Standards ESS3 - Earth and Human Activity. If you would like one of these kits, please complete the form at this link:

    "Keep Teaching Science! Successful Strategies to Adapt K–12 Science Experiences for Distance Learning"  is a document developed by WestEd (taking over to Achieve to support NGSS). 

    Anchored in the vision of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and A Framework for K-12 Science Education, a new NextGenScience resource highlights ways materials designed for in-person NGSS learning can be adapted for virtual or at-home settings while maintaining or enhancing best practices.

    "The COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in widespread and ongoing changes to how the K55 education system functions, including disruptions to science teaching and learning environments. Students and teachers are all figuring out how to do schooling differently, and districts and states are working overtime to reimagine systems and processes. This is difficult and stressful work in the middle of the already stressful and sometimes traumatic backdrop of the global pandemic. In addition, students with disabilities, students of color, immigrants, English learners, and students from under-resourced communities have been disproportionately affected, both by the pandemic itself and by the resulting instructional shifts."
