Find your path through the Next Generation Science Standards with help from the Concord Consortium. Start in the center with a core idea. What do you teach? Add a scientific and engineering practice—or two! Add a crosscutting concept. You've created one path through the NGSS. Use the Concord Consortium resources available for that path below. http://concord.org/ngss/
