This is a pack of materials to support EAL learners at a range of stages of English language acquisition with writing up science investigations.
It is suitable as a whole class resource for 12-14 year olds, or as differentiation within a class for beginner EAL learners whose English writing is at sentence level.
The Science investigations pack contains a range of materials to support EAL learners with writing up science investigations. There are PowerPoint slides to support speaking and listening activities prior to the writing task and then differentiated writing frames to scaffold the writing-up process. The writing frames use slightly different colour schemes so they are easy to distinguish but otherwise look similar so the difference in the level of support given is not immediately obvious.
On the right hand side of this page are a number of documents that you can download for free. Please note that the Teaching Notes and Resources can be found in the pdf document (the first item on the list), whilst the PowerPoint document(s) include(s) presentation(s) which you can display on your interactive board in your classroom.
