The WVU Extension
WVU Extension Youth Programming (not just for 4-H) is offering tons of student oriented workshops and they are also pulling resources from other providers to promote opportunities for STEM at home! https://extension.wvu.edu/youth-family/news
Below is a link to NGSS@NSTA Classroom Resources website which has resources which may be useful to you. You may use the query on the site to search for resources specific the grade/s and science topics you teach.
These classroom resources—over 800 lesson plans, book chapters, videos, simulations, and more—are vetted by NSTA curators who recommend ways to adapt them to be more in line with the vision of the NGSS.
NASA's Education Resource Center:

WV Geologic and Economic Survey Geoscience Education resources can be found at the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey website. These activities were developed during the RockCamp Program. Many were teacher developed and teacher tested! http://www.wvgs.wvnet.edu/www/geoeduc/geoeduc.htm
If you have other resources that can be used by teachers, parents, and students to improve science education, please send them to Todd.Ensign@FairmontState.edu and put WVSTA Website in the subject line.
Do you have students who are creative and artistic? Would they like the chance to have their artwork displayed at a statewide event? Please encourage these students to apply their vision to designing a cover for the 2024 West Virginia Science Teachers Fall Conference.
