This is an excellent review resource for 5th grade science standardized testing. It was developed to follow Texas STAAR testing standards, but it is excellent for tests from other states as well. It includes topics from all STAAR Readiness and Supporting Student Expectations. Broad categories are broken down into 97 topics for review. It can be used to post up on the wall and have students, individually or in groups or pairs, list one thing they know about the topic (definitions, examples, pictures). When the next person adds his/her input, it must be something different than is already written. The idea is that one person will write the definition, and all others will dig deep to find something new to write. For example, if the paper says "Weather," the things written could be the definition of weather, pictures of clouds or rain, temperature numbers with Celcius and Fahrenheit, etc. This resource could also be given out to each student to put their own thoughts together about each topic. I used it, and the students said it really helped them to refresh and review the topics for testing. I put them up in the room or hall outside my room and gave them two weeks to complete it. I had them initial beside their input so that I knew what each student was writing.
