MS-ESS1-2 HS-ESS1-4 Solar System Eclipse Claim Evidence Reasoning Google Ready


SKU: 7399794 Category: Tags: , ,


Students learn how different types of solar eclipses occur  through a C.E.R. (Claim Evidence Reasoning) graphic organizer. 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. 

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

You get a CER graphic organizer, an editable key, the article, tips for CER and the link to the website in the article.

The article has the following concepts:

Solar Eclipse


Earth, Moon and Sun Alignment

Total, Annular, Partial and Hybrid

ESS1.B:  Earth and the Solar System

•The solar system consists of the sun and a collection of objects, including planets, their moons, and asteroids that are held in orbit around the sun by its gravitational pull on them.(MS-ESS1-2), (MS-ESS1-3)

•This model of the solar system can explain eclipses of the sun and the moon. Earth’s spin axis is fixed in direction over the short-term but tilted relative to its orbit around the sun. The seasons are a result of that tilt and are caused by the differential intensity of sunlight on different areas of Earth across the year.  


NGSS for High School:

ESS1.B:  Earth and the Solar System

•Kepler’s laws describe common features of the motions of orbiting objects, including their elliptical paths around the sun. Orbits may change due to the gravitational effects from, or collisions with, other objects in the solar system. (HS-ESS1-4)

Engaging in Argument from Evidence:

In 9–12 builds on K–8 experiences and progresses to using appropriate and sufficient evidence and scientific reasoning to defend and critique claims and explanations about the natural and designed world(s). Arguments may also come from current scientific or historical episodes in science.

CCC’s: Patterns

Observed patterns of forms and events guide organization and classification, and they prompt questions about relationships and the factors that influence them.
