Reflection: Modeling Types of Clouds - Section 4: Elaborate


Making inferences based on observation and information is a necessary skill for the science classroom. Students sometimes need a little support in drawing connections between what they observe and information they read.

In order to do this, I provided students with the necessary vocabulary framework to make an inference, "based on this... I think this..." Students benefit from seeing this language in front of them. They are able to complete the sentences, this making connections between their observations and the information from the text.
