Using the Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning (CER) format, this set of four worksheets provides scaffolding for your students to begin writing their own conclusion in the CER format.
1) Sample CER conclusion in which the student identify the claim, reasoning, and evidence
2) Modeling CER- which you can do together as a class
3 and 4) Individual student practice worksheet
The modeling and individual student practice worksheets use the same situations found in Make Them Think's Hypothesis Writing Worksheet. Simple, but realistic data tables that allow the students to draw a conclusion from experimental data. There are samples that both verify and falsify a hypothesis.
Once your students have learned how to draw a conclusion, its time for them to design their own experiment. Check out the A Toy Car's Acceleration Lab for a great experimental design lab.
