Claim Evidence Reasoning California Mudslides (Current Event and Sub Plan)


SKU: 3588972 Category: Tags: , ,


With this product students will understand some of the science and human impact of the California Mudslides and Wildfires using a National Geographic article. Students will use evidence in the article that climate change may be have been a contributing factor to the extreme weather patterns and drought that have led to the worst wildfires and mudslides in California’s history.

Claim Evidence Reasoning or C.E.R. charts are great for getting your students to explain phenomena in a meaningful way and it allows you as the instructor to adequately assess their understanding of concepts. The students figure out what the “Claim” is in the article, they then use data that supports the claim in the “Evidence” section, draw visual evidence and then explain why the evidence supports the claim in the “Reasoning ” section.

You get a CER graphic organizer, the key, the article and the link to the website which is in the article. This can be used as a sub plan, current event and/or relating to weather.
