Earth's seasons and astronomy has never been more fun for your students or easier for you!
Improve your student's knowledge with this close reading passage, reading reflection, self grading digital assessment, KWL chart, and crossword puzzle! This lesson is a great mix of traditional and technology based assignments. If you haven't used self-grading assessments before they are a powerful way to incorporate technology in your class while making your teacher life much easier!
In this download, you get a close reading assignment covering the reasons that Earth has seasons, reading reflection questions, two versions of a crossword puzzle covering the topic (one with a word bank, and one without), a KWL chart, and a Google based ten-question self-grading assessment. The crossword puzzle is perfect as homework or for early finishers. The Google assessment is fully editable, so you can add or delete questions to suit your classroom and your students. The assessment was designed using Google Forms and can be shared with your students via Google Classroom or Google Drive. The assessment can be printed if you prefer a paper based quiz. Once shared digitally, students can take the assessment and you can immediately see their results. Once students complete the assessment, you have several options.
1. You can see an item analysis of the students' work.
2. You can see individual responses for each of your students.
3. You can also view an excel spreadsheet with all of your students' answers.
If you are new to Google Forms, no problem! Your download includes a link to a video that explains the features of Google Forms and how to customize your form to be perfect for you and your students!
