Assessments for ALL nine 1st Grade Next Generation Science Standards in ONE place!!!!! This is a 19 page document in PDF form that has 1 page assessments for each standard with answer keys INCLUDED! These can also be used as classroom activities if you choose not to use them as assessments. The standards are listed below:
1-PS4-1 Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.
1-PS4-2 Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.
1-PS4-3 Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.
1-PS4-4 Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance.
1-ESS1-1 Use observations of the sun, moon,and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.
1-ESS1-2 Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year.
1-LS1-2 Read texts and use media to determine patterns in behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive.
1-LS3-1 Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents.
1-LS1-1 Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.
