Chemistry in the Earth System: Integrating Chemistry and Earth and Space Science

Chemistry in the Earth System: Integrating Chemistry and Earth and Space Science

Your Pacing Guide for 3-Dimensional Teaching

Turn to labs that can help you lead students to succeed. Carolina Kits 3D® investigations engage students in scientific and engineering practices while applying core ideas and crosscutting concepts—experiences that are key to thriving with the NGSS and phenomena-based learning.

Address phenomena throughout the school year with this week-by-week lab activity guide.
