Google Ready CER Claim Evidence Reasoning Plate Tectonics Distance Learning


SKU: 5341923 Category: Tags: , ,


With this product, students will understand the science behind Plate Tectonics and evidence provided by the author claiming that parts of North America were once attached to Australia by reading an article and filling in a Claim Evidence Reasoning Chart/Graphic Organizer. This resource can be used in Google Classroom, for distance learning or in your classroom!

The article has the following concepts:

Plate Tectonics

Continental plates

Formation of landforms

Super Continent Pangaea

Super Continent “Nuna”

Sedimentary rocks

Geologic Time Scale

This is great for a current event, sub plan, homework, critical thinking, scaffolding and/or reinforcement of weather concepts!

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, tips for CER and the link to the website which is at the beginning of the article.

NGSS Standards:


ESS2.B Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions: Plate tectonics is the unifying theory that explains movements of rocks at Earth’s surface and geological history. Maps are used to display evidence of plate movement.

ESS1.C The History of Planet Earth: Rock strata and the fossil record can be used as evidence to organize the relative occurrence of major historical events in Earth’s history.


Engaging in Argument from Evidence


Cause and Effect

Stability and Change
