In Each Module
The Data in the Classroom Team, comprised of education and technology experts, along with teachers, wants to make each of these resources as easy to use for you and your classroom as possible.
Each module is built with the same structure and sets of resources:
The StoryMap activity works with any display device (desktop, laptop, tablet) connected to the internet. Within each StoryMap, there are tabs for each Activity Level (1-5), Get Data tools, and Teacher Resources. Please visit the Using the Technology page for a better understanding of the StoryMaps
A Teacher's Guide (PDF) that goes through each activity in great detail, provides all of the information that you’ll need to work through any of the activities with either the StoryMap or the printable resources.
Since not every classroom can be fully “wired” there are PowerPoint files that have each map or image used in the online activity as a printable version.
Student Activity Sheets
Student Activity sheets can be used to log data observations and analysis for each of the modules and activity levels.
Science Education Standards
Data in the Classroom is committed to developing resources that support the needs of educators. Key to the framework's design is three dimensional learning that includes science or engineering practice (SEP), a disciplinary core idea (DCI), and a crosscutting concept (CC). Learn more about how each module specifically relates to the Framework, as well as the Next Generation Science Standards, by visiting the Teacher Guide section of any of the online modules.
