Teach Your Students How To Write Like a Scientist With These Sentence-Starter Posters

Most elementary students love science class: testing the speed of a vehicle they built, observing an animal in its habitat, making a model of the water cycle. All that stuff is interesting to them. Where they tend to struggle is with writing about it. Not only is that the expectation for “showing what you know,” writing is also a key part of doing science. So whether you have English-language learners who need some scaffolding or kids who say, “I don’t know where to start,” you’re going to want these science sentence starters (in poster form!). We think they’ll go a long way toward boosting the confidence of reluctant science writers.
