We teach students science concepts, and we then test them. We have them conduct experiments, then we test them. How many times do students not make the connections between what is learned and how it is tested? A Claim Evidence Reasoning helps students create scientific explanations to their findings. They have to answer the question with a claim, state the specific evidence from observations and/or data that supports the claim, then use reasoning of the concept and vocabulary to connect the evidence to their claims. This helps them fully comprehend why their answer truly does answer a question in science. Try one out in your classroom today!
