Description

Claim Evidence Reasoning Practice Pages and Slide Show  Students will learn to write a CER, Claim-Evidence-Reasoning responses, and make scientific arguments based on evidence. Students will look at text evidence and evidence from images, diagrams, and graphs. Students will write a claim in response to a question, identify evidence and provide reasoning. Specific pages are provided with less text and easier topics for differentiation and other specific pages are provided with more complex topics for challenging students who need to be challenged.

Includes:

  • Slideshow explaining how to write a CER
  • 21 practices pages
  • Middle school science topics
  • CER Writing Page
  • Two forms of Practice Pages-one with room for a paragraph, the other with a paragraph on separate paper
  • Differentiated pages
  • Answer keys

Use these throughout the year as you teach the particular concept or use it to teach students to write a CER and have them practice making Claim-Evidence-Reasoning statements. Makes a great morning review. Middle school science topics are used.

My resources, including the slide show, are secure and not editable for copyright reasons.

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!
