Review for the STAAR and ensure that your students are well-prepared. (Please click on "Preview" above to get a closer look at what is included.)

This 18 page review packet covers all of the Readiness Standards and Supporting Standards for Reporting Category 4: Organisms and Environments. Each section is titled with the TEKS that are addressed along with various activities/questions to make sure your students are reviewed and ready for the STAAR test in May. The optional cover page also provides an area for students to identify their strong TEKS and weak TEKS. It's important for students to understand the test and know what they need to work on prior to testing.

A modified version of the review packet is included. Word banks are provided when possible and an answer choice has been eliminated on multiple choice questions. The students who receive the modified version will still get all of the same answers as the regular version, so no additional answer key is needed.

A variety of methods for students to answer and prove their understanding of the material are included: labeling diagrams, fill-in-the-blank sentences, open ended and short answer questions, multiple choice, deciphering illustrations and diagrams, check boxes, reading graphic organizers, defining key terms, identifying parts of a food chain/web, identifying relationships using food webs, interpreting graphs, short reading passage, labeling short- and long-term environmental changes, sequencing stages of ecological success, placing terms/statements into Venn Diagrams, identifying organisms using a dichotomous key, matching functions and organs to organ system, matching function of organelles to the correct cell organelle, classifying characteristics of 6 Kingdoms, and much more!

A complete teacher answer key is provided which will free up your time to be able to assist students and facilitate small group instruction or interventions, if necessary. Some ideas for how to best use this in your class are included.
