Science CER Practice Bundle


Money-Saving CER Bundle!

Grades 7 and Up

BUY 2 GET 1 FREE! Students get science CER practice by analyzing data and writing claims from evidence.
In these activities, students will:
  • READ a brief passage about a science scenario.
  • ANALYZE a very simple data table.
  • Make a CLAIM based on EVIDENCE for a related question.
These CER activities are designed to get kids practicing CER, not learning content. No prior content knowledge is required. Students are able to make a claim based on the information in the text and data table alone.
Three Ways to Assign!
  1. As Stations: Great for getting kids moving around the room! Each set of 8 station cards (24 total cards in this bundle) has a brief description of science scenario and a data table. Students complete a Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning grid for a question related to each of the 8 data sets. Three separate station activities are included in this set.
  2. As a Worksheet: Great for individual student practice! Students read a short description of a science scenario and analyze the data to complete a Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning grid for each data set. Three separate worksheets are included in this set.
  3. Digitally: A Google Slides version of this activity is included. Three separate Google Slides activities are included in this set.
Topics Included: (Remember, the focus is on CER, not science content!)
