    Are your students struggling with writing their claim, evidence, and reasoning scientific explanations? These claim evidence reasoning activities are great for introducing and practicing CER. Start with the crime scene investigation to introduce claim evidence reasoning and then have them interpret studies and experiments in the CER practice lessons. These 25 activities will help students master writing scientific explanation summaries and support their claims with evidence and reasoning (CER).  Comes with language support, in the form of graphic organizers and sentence frames. Plus a generic rubric to help you grade students' CERs and a self-assessment checklist. This is great for integrating the Common Core into your science class.
