This visual organizer helps young scientist formulate and write a hypothesis that is supported with evidence and scientific reasoning by giving them a variety of sentence starters.
I can make a claim about whether the data supports or negates the hypothesis in one sentence.
I can use relevant evidence (experimental data, numbers, research) that supports or verifies the hypothesis. (Relevant evidence confirms or disproves claim)
I can explain why the evidence/examples I chose establishes my claim as valid.
Why does the evidence you chose verify or negate the hypothesis?
Reasoning is all about validating your evidence by connecting it to scientific definitions, principles (cause & effect), concepts, claims, laws & rules.
