Next Generation Science Standards

Many existing resources from Science A-Z align with the Next Generation Science Standards*, helping students prepare to satisfy the Performance Expectations. New resources are being created with the new standards in mind, including taking a three-dimensional approach to learning by integrating Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts. To help you locate resources that support the national science standards, we offer two options:

  1. Use the links below to download and view charts showing connections between the standards and Science A-Z units, as well as several featured resources. The specific grade-band charts list units and selected best-fit resources from Science A-Z to support the Performance Expectations and Disciplinary Core Ideas. The Kindergarten—Middle School Summary shows which units are best aligned with the standards at each grade level.

  2. Use the online interface below to search by grade level and standard. Click a blue link to see a list of resources related to that standard. Click again to download a resource.
