PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Save time and use this ready-made Social Studies pre-test at the beginning of the year to find out what your students already know about Prehistory and the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, India, China. Then use the included post-test at the end of the year to see how much they have learned. This product includes two versions of the pre- and post-tests: with and without questions about Ancient India and China, for teachers whose districts do not include those civilizations in their Ancient History curriculum.

The 2-page lesson plan explains how to administer the pre-test, specifies what teachers should tell students who will take the pre-test, and offers suggestions for supporting students who are at lower levels of reading ability or English language proficiency. Version 1 of the pre-test has 8 multiple-choice questions and 1 open-ended response question; Version 2 has 11 multiple-choice questions and 1 open-ended response question. The pre-test does not take a lot of class time to administer and can be used with both ELLs and native English-speaking students.

Answer keys for both versions are included along with a suggestion for how to assess the response to the writing question. There is a Challenge Handout for students who finish early, which asks students to match pictures representing each civilization with the names of civilizations provided in a word bank. There are 2 versions of this handout, depending on which pre-test is used, and both versions come in color and black-and-white and have answer keys. Example WIDA Model Performance Indicators (MPIs) are included as well in this product.

I used these pre- and post-tests every year with my 6th and 7th graders who were learning about Ancient History in their Social Studies classes. This product can also be used with students in other grades who are learning about these civilizations.
