This is a quiz/assessment/test used with my 3rd graders. It covers the scientific method and inquiry skills that my students are required to know prior to beginning our science curriculum. The test consists of 16 multiple choice questions, one question where students are asked to create a bar graph, and 3 short answer question. Also, an answer key is included. It is geared for 3rd graders and meets the Georgia Performance (GPS) standards for science. If your school uses the GA edition of the HarcourtÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â© science book, it goes with chapter 1.
