Science of Beautifying East Ridge Middle School

Jennifer Roth’s East Ridge sixth graders planted bulbs for the spring. Roth writes, “in science, my students were focusing on ‘developing and using models,’ which is one of the science engineering practices (SEP) outlined by Next Generation Science Standards. Students modeled a bulb in their science journals and then had fun planting them in front of the school. Asking questions about the process and nature as we move through the lesson is part of the NGSS approach. We can’t wait to see the bulbs come up in the spring.
