PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Science Assessment Activities for Primary Level 3 provides your students 15 challenging tasks to demonstrate what they are able to do as a result of their science experiences. These hands on activities developed by Karen Ostlund and Sheryl Mercier use inexpensive materials and are flexible enough to use with individuals, small groups, or an entire class. The science lesson assessments include: Teacher instructions for testing the major process skills of scientific inquiry, Separate tests for each inquiry skill, Material lists, Student recording sheets, Scoring rubrics for each lesson, and an added open inquiry template for Science full inquiry investigations. Use the activities to teach the process skills of inquiry or to assess your students' progress throughout the year, after a specific unit of instruction, or as a year-end evaluation. Each activity can also be used as a starting point for writing.
These activities are contained in the book Assessments for the Process Skills of Inquiry Primary Grades which is also sold on this site.

These assessments are going to be great next year when we transition to standards based report cards and will need to assess each science skill. This is great for 3rd grade!
