Are you looking to integrate collaborative conversations into your science curriculum? Are you looking to reinforce ELA skills like evidence based critical thinking? Do you want to make sure are supporting the 5E model in science. These science talk cards accomplish all of these!
I have used these Science Talk Cards successfully during each step of the 5E Science lesson plan as prompt discussion sentence starters. I also use them during instruction to reinforce the use of evidence-based terminology and collaborative conversations. In addition, I place the cards like posters at lab centers for students to refer to during experiments.
