This is a great tool to help teachers with cross curriculum activities with writing and science. These writing prompts are based on higher order thinking and allow students to be creative and give thought to science topics. Some require the students to make riddles about science, write "thank you letters" to parts of the earth, compare and contrast, and so many more.
There are more than 50 slides with pictures included.
