With this product students will learn about some of the science behind car crashes by reading an article from scienceabc.com. The article asks if double a car’s speed double the force of impact. What the article explains using the equation for Kinetic Energy (KE=1/2mass x velocity²), is that impact force actually increases by 4-6 times when velocity doubles! Students will use evidence in the article that the author provides, draw visual evidence and reason why the data supports the author’s claim.
Claim Evidence Reasoning or C.E.R. charts are great for getting your students to explain phenomena in a meaningful way and it allows you as the instructor to adequately assess their understanding of concepts. The students figure out what the "Claim" is in the article, they then use data that supports the claim in the "Evidence" section, draw visual evidence and then explain why the evidence supports the claim in the "Reasoning " section.
You get a CER graphic organizer, the key, the article and the link to the website. This can be used for a current event, homework, sub plan, English Language Arts and Physics .
