This is an activity the is designed to be used with a variety of science articles either as part of a regular homework assignment or as in class practice with teacher modeling . Students will use the SEP of Asking Questions, Planning and Carrying Out Investigations, and Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information
I use articles from newspapers, magazines and find and . I look for two-three articles around the same general theme that are describing the results of a research experiment to allow for student choice.
I usually have students complete this task in their interactive notebooks so I use a class set of the one page direction sheet. I have included a worksheet version for scaffolding with SPED students.
