Free 3-D Science Lesson Plans

Go 3-D with the GRC website. The Gather, Reason, Communicate (GRC) framework is a student-centered instructional approach that provides a structure to engage students in making sense of a phenomenon through science and engineering practices. The GRC Framework may also be used within a 5-E model lesson plan to connect analogous phenomena.

This site is a collection of vetted, three-dimensional lessons aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and state standards developed from the Framework for K-12 Science Education. The lessons were developed by teachers across districts and states utilizing local phenomena. Lessons are grouped by elementary, middle school, and high school. Lesson plan templates (in forced copy mode) are also available for both GRC and 5-E for teachers to create or enhance their own lessons.
