This will get your students ready for the science STAAR test!! This is 15 pages worth of hard work and experience with 5th grade science! There are 7 scenerios presented and the students must answer the questions as thouroughly as possible. Each scenerio has a rubric for the teacher to easily asses the student's knowledge and obtain a grade. The scenerios cover the following concepts:
