Super Bowl Edition ~ Make a Claim Using Evidence is SUPER FUN and SUPER easy!! Students can make claims about the game, the players, the commercials, the cheerleaders, or ANY topic!
Can be USED WITH ANY TEXT.
I have also done this activity with the Super Bowl commercials, and I have the kids take notes on the commercials and then make a claim about their favorite! Using digital sources is a CCLS!!
I created these scaffolded response sheets to help my students make a claim and prove it with evidence.
CCSS: W.8: Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; take notes and categorize information, and provide a list of sources.
CCSS: RI.2 Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text.
