Crosscutting Concepts…Across the Ages

80 Minutes

Participants will learn the history of the "crosscutting concepts," one of the major tenets of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Participants will explore the crosscutting concept "Structure and Function" at the elementary, middle, and high schools levels. Participants will perform activities that illustrate Structure and Function at work and get ideas on how to incorporate Structure and Function into their subject matter. If time permits, participants may also explore "Systems and System Models."
