Product Description
This resource is part of a collection of mini-cases that I use as claim, evidence, and reasoning hooks at the beginning of my lessons. I call the series "Connecting Concepts" for students because the language is more student-friendly.

(1) At the beginning of class, students read the quick case and complete a draft response on my CER template (found here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Claim-Evidence-and-Reasoning-Template-EDITABLE-3910860)
(2) During the lesson students complete a graphic organizer related to the characteristics of living things (FREE here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Properties-of-Living-Things-Graphic-Organizer-3910809)
(3) As a CFU, students peer assessment or self-assess their draft.
(4) At the end of the lesson, students complete their final draft as an exit ticket.

This file is EDITABLE and may be integrated into electronic or other resources.
