This is a test prep resource aligned to the common core standards for 5th grade. This could easily be used in 4th grade or 6th grade for remediation.

This contains 3 passages: 2 informational and 1 fictional about the game show Survivor.

Each passage contains 2 pages of multiple choice and extended response questions that are aligned with the common core standards.

I have included a common core alignment page and an answer key.

Please note that the passages and questions are Survivor game show themed but this is not an actual Survivor game show test prep.
