To support literacy across the curriculum and obviously Science in particular here, these sentence construction frames are extremely useful in a number of different contexts. Students find this quite a challenge but do engage with this in an extremely positive manner. A good opportunity for collaborative work.
They can be edited for differentiation purposes, with significant challenge for the most able and also access for the weakest/SEND.
They have been used very successfully as starters, plenaries, end of topic summaries, revision tools, homework and also extensions and they can be adapted for any topic across the entire curriculum from Yr7 to Yr13.
I have attached a number of examples with associated powerpoints to have up on the board as the students attempt the task, including.....
Hydrocarbons, Fractional Distillation and Cracking
Respiratory and Circulatory System
The Atom, Reacting Masses and Rates of Reaction
Transformers and Power
