These 5th grade science preps (45 total) are designed for a spring exercise for about 45 to 50 days out of the STAAR test. They have been invaluable for our school, and our science scores have not been below 90% in the last 7 years. We are an urban, Title 1 school...90% plus low eco dis population, 94% minority 74% Hispanic/20% African American), 20% mobility rate, and 55% percent LEP.
