This is a set of 17 science sentence starters (sometimes called sentence stems) that I have compiled over my years as a middle school science teacher. They can be used to get students talking and writing about the science they are doing in your class!
As a science teacher, one of my biggest challenges (and goals) is to improve my students' science communication skills. These sentence starter cards are a staple in my classroom every year!
Included in this download:
*a full page handout containing a list of 17 sentence stems
*a handy half-page version of the list of 17 sentence stems that makes a great addition to an interactive notebook
In addition, I have included everything you need to create a bulletin board display that you can leave up all year for students to reference:
*Full page header
*17 half-page polka-dot framed cards (one for each sentence starter)
*A blank card in case you would like to add your own sentence starter
Laminate them and you will have an amazing resource for years to come.
I have found these sentence starters particularly great with my English language learners as a way of scaffolding their scientific writing!
These are black and white - I make most of my printables in black and white and then use coloured paper to make them stand out. I like to conserve ink.
