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 7 page review packet covers all of the Readiness Standards and Supporting Standards for Reporting Category 1: Matter and Energy. Each section is titled with the TEKS that are addressed along with various activities/questions to ensure that 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. I think it's important for students to understand the test and know what they need to work on prior.

A variety of methods for students to answer and prove their understanding of the material are included: drawing atom models, filling in blanks on data tables, fill-in-the-blank, open ended and short answer questions, multiple choice, shading portions of the periodic table, circle the correct answer from a provided list, identfying physical vs. chemical changes, check boxes, labeling diagrams, highlighting a food chain within a food web, shading the tropic levels of an energy pyramind, solving word problems with mathematical calculations, and much more!

3.28.16 UPDATE: 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 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.
