Amplify Science Curriculum
Integrates the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Amplify Science is not topic-driven but phenomena driven (something observed in nature). Students are introduced to the unit problem, set in the context of a real-world experience. Through repetition of DO, TALK, READ, WRITE, and VISUALIZE, the students will understand the real-life experience.
