Students in my class are currently collecting data using a science simulation on projectiles. Students are looking at size, mass, starting velocity, and diameter. Not to mention air resistance and no air resistance. We are using Google Docs, specifically spreadsheet, so students can be editing the document simultaneously.
From there, each student will be given questions that will require t...

Instructional Sequence Matters, Grades 6–8: Structuring Lessons With the NGSS in Mind
