This pack contains two standard-based assessments. Each assessment matches one of the Life Science Standards for Ohio (see below). The assessment questions are varied (multiple choice, short answer, diagrams, tables, matching, venn diagram, etc.) to create a rigorous assessment experience that will show you what students really know and prepare them for the big end of year test!
5.LS.1 Organisms perform a variety of roles in an ecosystem.
5.LS.1a - Populations of organisms can be categorized by how they acquire energy.
5.LS.1b - Food webs can be used to identify the relationships among producers, consumers and decomposers in an ecosystem.
5.LS.2 All of the processes that take place within organisms require energy.
5.LS.2a - For ecosystems, the major source of energy is sunlight.
5.LS.2b - Energy entering ecosystems as sunlight is transferred and transformed by producers into energy that organisms use through the process of photosynthesis. That energy then passes from organism to organism as illustrated in food webs.
5.LS.2c - In most ecosystems, energy derived from the sun is transferred and transformed into energy that organisms use by the process of photosynthesis in plants and other photosynthetic organisms.
