Teaching about climate and energy is a perfect match for the Next Generation Science Standards. These topics span multiple disciplines and weave together earth science, life science, engineering, design, and societal impacts. Districts and teachers are developing NGSS units to address these expectations and seek current, trusted resources to use. The Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) Collection is a rigorously-curated digital library of 650+ free learning resources, including activities, videos, short demonstrations and guidance for teaching about climate and energy. The collection is tagged and searchable by NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas, Science and Engineering Practices and Cross-Cutting Concepts. Example units and processes for using CLEAN resources to build NGSS units are also available and in process. This webinar will highlight the ways in which climate and energy learning is included in NGSS, will describe the resources available through CLEAN, and will show attendees how to use CLEAN for their NGSS needs.
