13 full page word webs for each piece of the practices
7 pages of half size word webs for each piece of the practices
The best time of year to use this would be at the beginning of the school year. It can also serve as something you can use as you integrate the various Science and Engineering Practices with different standards.
Within this product I have broken some of the practices into multiple pieces to ensure students have a chance to analyze each piece for full understanding or mastery of the practice. For example, practice #1 was split into two pieces (asking questions and defining problems). This will ensure students know what the difference between the two parts are, but then go back and tie them together to see how they could possibly relate.
This product will be used for students to analyze each practice or part of a practice. It was left blank without the extending pieces for the web because not all students think alike. Some students may come up with more connections than others. It’s left blank to allow all students to figure out their own connections to the practices using their background knowledge.
You can use this within a group to have them analyze a practice or individually for each student to make connections. You can divide each page up between pairs of students have them present their connections to the class, allowing for peer to peer feedback and questioning.
These pages would also be great additions to any science notebook the students keep during the year. They would be great reference materials to have for them to refer back to at anytime during the year.
