Scientific Literacy Collaborative Communities
Learning science is learning language! Modeling and writing explanations are important for refining and consolidating new ideas with prior knowledge. We will share how and why models and explanations impacted children's scientific literacy in collaborative communities across our partnership.

Biomes & Invasive Species
How do the characteristics of a biome determine the plant and animal life found there? How do non-native species survive to become invasive species? In this activity from the SEPUP high school biology program, students match a set of organism cards to proper climate/biome cards, then use literacy strategies to consider the impact of invasive species.
