25 WRITING PROMPTS!! ENOUGH FOR 5 WEEKS!!
Let’s get writing in Science! These writing prompts are excellent ways to start your science instruction. Use them as a warm-up to get your students thinking about science the minute they enter your classroom. Start as early as the first day of school. By writing in science, your students will become more confident in themselves as not only writers, but scientists.
I usually give my students 5-10 minutes of free writing time. They may also return to their writing during class time if they finish a task early. Some prompts are very specific, and others require more creativity. On Friday, students choose their favorite prompt of the week and write two more paragraphs about the topic at home over the weekend. My students love these prompts - I hope yours do too!
