This document provides the Life Science FCAT 2.0 assessed Benchmarks for grades 3-5 complete with the most critical information a teacher needs for planning.
Students need to build knowledge in the content areas. To do this, they need a cohesive body of knowledge. The structure of our science benchmarks provides this cohesiveness. With that said, it's imperative teachers know the scope of the benchmarks in order to prioritize the required knowledge & skills. Understanding the Benchmark Clarifications and Content Limits will help teachers create a hierarchy of learning life science content.
