This is the one and only resource you will need to prepare your students for the Florida State Science Assessment (SSA) formerly the Florida FCAT.
All assessed benchmarks (Grades 3-5) have been thoroughly reviewed and summarized in this packet using benchmark clarifications and content limits from the FCAT 2.0 Science Test Item Specifications.
Key vocabulary words are in bold and underlined to emphasize importance and explained so kids can understand concepts assessed.
There are many ways this resource can be used. A few ideas include:
Assign it as nightly homework. Have students read through this packet 10-15 minutes nightly.
Reteach based on standards. Use classroom or progress monitoring data to pinpoint which standards are not mastered by individual students.
Warm Up/Bell Work. Have the students silently read a standard each morning before class.
Flashcards: Students can design question and answer flash cards using this packet.
This packet can be used over a couple days, weeks, or months.
