The Claim, Evidence, and Reasoning method for writing a scientific explanation is a great way to meet Next Generation Science Standards.
Students love to investigate and write about a topic that interests them, and this theme does not disappoint.
Students begin by learning some history of Groundhog Day and end with writing a CER.
This topic combines ELA, math, and social studies, as well as many science topics (seasons, ecology, animals, astronomy….) .
This activity is great for Groundhog Day, but can be done any time of year.
