The Gro Beasts were shipped out immediately and I received them in 2 days time. I used them in my classroom for data analysis.

All of the grow animals are a great activity when teaching or reviewing the use of the triple beam balance and the scientific method. It is also great they they can be used mor than one year!

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

2-PS1-2

Students analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.

MS-PS1-2

Students can analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.

MS/ETS1.B

A solution needs to be tested, and then modified on the basis of the test results in order to improve it.

HS-PS2-6

Students will observe and communicate scientific information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of a material.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

2-PS1-2

Students can conduct simple tests using the Gro-Beast Dinosaur to better understand the rate at which the polymers absorb or evaporate water. Information gathered can be used as evidence to support or refute student ideas about hydrophilic (water-loving) materials.

MS-PS1-2

Students can analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.

HS-PS2-6

Students will observe and communicate scientific information about why the substance is able to absorb so much water. Further study of the structure of the hydrophilic polymers will help students to understand that the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of a material.
