Product Description
This is a reading comprehension assessment to use as a reading check for a current event article related to Chemistry. The article, ‘Periodic Table gains four new superheavy elements, completing the seventh row’ was written by Jessica Hall on 5 January 2016. This article discusses the discovery for four additional elements, the means by which they were discovered, and how they were detected. This is a great article to showcase the collaboration of science, the timeline of science (discoveries are still being made to this day), and it provides some information for how elements are named and categorized. This would be a great unit opener on atomic structure or when discussing the periodic table.

The article accompanying this comprehension assessment can be found at this site: https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/220259-periodic-table-gains-four-new-superheavy-elements-completing-the-seventh-row

One implementation idea is to have students read the article and perform the individual assessment as homework. During the next class period, collect their individual assessment and then work in groups to answer the same questions in a group. Students need to be reminded to use the text when taking the assessment and to revisit the article text often to find where the answers are located. Once all groups are finished, go through the group assessment, provide the correct answers, and help student locate evidence in the article for any questions that were missed.
