Welcome back! Hopefully the summer gave everyone a chance to recharge and get excited about starting a fresh year.
To help us better support you this year in your Science teaching, please take 3-5 min to fill out this information form: Science 2019-2020
The Science section of STEM North is meant to help organize important information and resources that are valuable to teachers. As well, this section will be updated regularly with new information and resources as they become available. Science is an inquiry-based/problem-solving environment. It is important to keep this in mind and to always be learning about ways that we can engage and empower our students. If there is something in particular you are looking for, you can use the search function in the top right hand corner of this page. On your right after you search, you will see that you can then filter according to grade level, topic, skill, etc.
Resources and information found on this site include:
- Lesson Guides
- Formative assessment resources
- STEM Fair resources and information
- Links to helpful science sites such as Smarter Science
- Provincial Assessment information and resources
- and more!
If you are looking for information that cannot be found here, or would like to talk about other support for your teaching, please contact Krista Hamilton at Krista.firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to a great year in Science!

The NGSS classroom resources database has many lessons and activities that have been vetted by the NSTA as well as user submitted materials. http://ngss.nsta.org/Classroom-Resources.aspx
The NGSS is more than a resource or someone's opinion on science education; it is the result of years of research and collaboration among education leaders and professional researchers. If you would like help with any of these, or other activities, contact the district STEM team.

Croft students in grades 4 and 5 are participating in a STEM enrichement that will culminate with the STEM Projects to be displayed at the ASD-N Elementary STEM Fair. In this session we learned the design process by building the tallest house of cards. Students evaluated their designs and offered feedback to other groups and redesigned based on new discovery.
