This Life Science writing assignment uses the Gathering, Reasoning, Communicating framework and is directly tied to NGSS expectations (MS-LS4-4). Students conduct a simulation relating to natural selection and adaptations and are then asked to respond to a writing prompt. The activity may be used in regular instruction or paired with the writing prompt as a form of assessment.
• A two-page teacher guide with NGSS connections (also ELA and Math as appropriate).
• A blank student-page with the Situation and Task for the writing assignment.
• A scoring rubric developed from ELA Common Core standards.
