IN SATURN'S RINGS AND NGSS
Next Generation Science Standards
Improving Science Education Through Three-Dimensional Learning
A table correlating the activities to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is provided at the end of this guide, as well as a list of books and websites for additional study.
We encourage cross-curricular synthesis by engaging teachers (i.e. English, Art, and Music) to create additional activities for students.
Writing a poem, review, or short story about In Saturn’s Rings; drawing or painting a picture inspired by the film; picking a song that reminds you of the film or selecting a new soundtrack for the film.
In keeping with the broad intellectual, emotional and spiritual aspects of In Saturn’s Rings this Educator Guide will engage students on each level of the STEAM curriculum (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math).
"Crosscutting Concepts help students explore connections across the four domains of science, including Physical Science, Life Science, Earth and Space Science, and Engineering Design.
When these concepts, such as 'cause and effect', are made explicit for students, they can help students develop a coherent and scientifically-based view of the world around them." - nextgenscience.org
