Conceptual Flows

The 2015 SCSP Summer Institute focused on Heredity (LS3) and Biological Evolution (LS4). The content of this institute will be repeated in 2020.

The 2014 SCSP Summer Institute focused on Molecules and Organisms (LS1) and Ecosystems (LS2). The content of this institute will be repeated in 2021.

At this time we only have conceptual flows. Our conceptual flows are diagrams that show one way that scientific concepts within a specific disciplanary core idea can connect and build. These diagrams include concepts from kindergarten through eighth grade and help guide our instruction for each summer institute.

NGSS-aligned Lesson Plans for Life Science will be shared in 2020 and 2021.
