Rating: Example of High Quality NGSS Design if Improved

Science Discipline: Physical Science

Length: Unit

This module is centered on the driving question, “How can we as engineers design a concert experience for others to enjoy?”  In order to answer this question, students will consider what a wave is, and how waves are modeled.  They will explore sound and light waves, and how these waves interact with various media.  The culminating performance task requires students to synthesize this information, and apply it to the design of a concert experience.  

The materials below are shared via a google drive folder and can be viewed and downloaded for use.

Hello, here's some clarifying language from the developer: "There is a folder labeled Performance Task, which is the final series of lessons in the module. Students go through Concepts 1-4 in order to build knowledge to be able to do the Performance Task, which is to design a concert experience." Let me know if you have any follow up questions. Thank you!

Hi Tracy, Unfortunately, there are no links for a kit or individual materials used because the developer had a partnership with a local region to acquire the materials. If you have specific questions about where they got a particular item, you are welcome to email Jeanne Norris at j.norris@wustl.edu. Thank you!

Hi Lydia, this unit covers physical science and engineering DCIs -- I don't believe it includes life science or cell division. Sorry I can't be more helpful!
