NGSS High School Life Science Resources (unscrambled)

Let's get a head start on figuring out the new standards. Rhode Island first to adopt, read about the criticism from Education Week. California is set to adopt NGSS in November 2013. Please share your links to activities or upload files. (Note: Common Core ELA/Literacy & Math associated statements have been added from 5/15/13 NGSS release)
