writE Science Sheets for Year 8

writE stands for "writing and reading integrated with talking about experiments".

The logo for the high school version of these is:

writE Science texts are intended to drive students from merely hands-on experiences to minds-on experiences as well. The worksheets are always well-structured, in a way that students can attack the text to extract meaning in hierarchical note form. Each writE activity requires all the facets of research represented in the Research Skill Development Framework and is structured to allow you to differentiate your classroom. Learners who are progressing well through a sequence of writE Science worksheets may be encouraged to forgo some early activities and to engage explicitly with the RSD facets in the pentagon version.
