This package includes 21 writing prompts aligned to Earth’s Systems. Each writing prompt is in the form of a question relating to Earth’s four spheres (atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere) and the interactions among and between each sphere.
These prompts can be used in writing groups, as part of a whole group research project, and/or independently as an assessment. The prompt topics allow for easy integration of ELA and science. Prompts could be used to guide instruction and/or be used as an exit slip as a science “cool down.”
I have also included Common Core aligned 5th grade writing explanatory and opinion scoring rubrics.
These prompts are designed and aligned to meet the 5th Grade Next Generation Science Standards within your Earth Systems unit of study.
Please see the Preview! I also have Earth's Systems Science Stations and Task Cards in my store!
Thanks for viewing!
