Use this activity to drill your students on the skill of writing scientific explanations using the claims, evidence and reasoning framework.
In this activity at each station students encounter a science data presentation in form of a graph, map, flowchart, data table or a diagram. It will be their job to examine the data like a scientist and determine what that data can tell us. Students will do this by writing a claim, supporting it with evidence and then giving reasoning.
