Claims, Evidence, Reasoning The Cl-Ev-R Poster Take a moment to examine the handout: – Cl-Ev-R Explanation (side 1) – Analysis Template (side 2) The Cl-Ev-R Analysis Template Claim Evidence Reasoning Cl-Ev-R & Formative Probes Cl-Ev-R Formative Probe Complete Sections 1 & 2 of the SWH template: 1. My Question: 1. My Beginning Understanding: Making a Probe CONCRETE Activity: • Use the materials at your table to conduct an experiment. • Record your procedure and test results. Making a Probe CONCRETE Activity (cont’d): Reference Handout #1 to • Write a claim regarding the effect of holes on floating. • Provide an explanation to support your claim with evidence and reasoning.
