The aim of this unit is to teach students more about information writing and, specifically, about the kinds of information writing that scientists are apt to do. During mini-lessons and small groups students are taught not only about informational writing but, about force and motion, and about the scientific method. This unit illuminates the work of being an information writer. Students will write informative / explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic. They will use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section.
