Here is a fun way for students to demonstrate what they know about SPACE/ASTRONOMY. Use this activity as a quick assessment after your space or astronomy unit. Hang the three tear tab posters around your room and let students choose one tab from a poster of their choice. Each tab contains a space/astronomy term on it. The key words list below shows the space/astronomy terms included. Students think about what they know about that space term and write three clues on the template page provided. Encourage students be creative in order to stump one another with their facts! Once students have written out their Cosmic Clues they can trade papers with a partner and their partner can try to figure out riddle based on the clues!
This is a wonderful way to assess student learning while allowing for creativity and movement!
