Writing in Science: How can I write like a scientist?

Students learn tips and tricks for becoming strong science writers! Communication is inherent in the field of science and we owe our students explicit writing instruction that relates to our content. This set of doodle notes and 5 practice stations focuses on scaffolding the science writing process by helping kids think and write about data, paraphrase the work of other scientists and support scientific claims with evidence and reasoning (Claims, Evidence, Reasoning model).
