Original price was: $91.50.Current price is: $47.00.


This resource is packed with easy to use, easy to grade, no prep, scientific current events, using the NGSS Science and Engineering practice of Engaging in Argument from Evidence.

Students learn about a variety of science topics through a C.E.R. (Claim Evidence Reasoning) graphic organizers. This is 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 also get 7 different generic templates used for any current events that apply to your content and you can use them for any activity/lab you do in class. Any time I see an interesting article that applies to what we are learning, I use these as my Go-To templates!

These are great for emergency sub plans and integrating into lessons so that your students can put content into context!

-7 CER Google Ready Graphic Organizer Templates (In Bonus File)
