Next Generation Science Standards: Grades 3-5

Welcome to TeachEngineering’s NGSS Engineering Design-Aligned Center for Grades 3-5 Educators!

The TeachEngineering hands-on activities featured here focus on the engineering design component of the NGSS standards.

These hands-on activities focus on the grades 3-5 Engineering Design standards that provide students with an opportunity to define a simple design problem with specified criteria and constraints, generate and compare various solutions to a problem based on which better meet the criteria, and carry out controlled tests to identify aspects of a model that can be improved.
