Are you looking to improve your students’ science writing? This print and go set of 4 Ecology CERs gives you everything you need for both claim, evidence, and reasoning practice while being able to assess their knowledge of ecological concepts.
Each CER uses a different type of evidence to increase understanding. There is one each with a reading passage, a graph, a set of data tables, and a food web. This will give your students needed practice in gathering evidence from different types of resources.
Not only that, but each CER also contains 2 versions: one without writing prompts and one with writing prompts. You can differentiate by class or even by student!
Here’s what’s included in your download:
- CER with a food web, 2 versions
- CER with a graph, 2 versions
- CER with a reading passage, 2 versions
- CER with a set of data tables, 2 versions
- Grading rubric
This resource can be used as an in-class assignment, a quick quiz, work for early finishers, a homework assignment, or work for a student who’s out of class for some reason. They also make great sub plans!
