A modified version of the mid unit assessment used as a part of the Rainforest Module for grade 5. This assessment is linguistically simplified. The text is shortened and some of the words were changed without impacting the meaning. Students are asked to find the gist of what they have read. The paragraph summarizes Epiphytes and their lifecycle. Students have to sequence the stages of epiphytes.
I used this mid-unit assessment with an Entering ELL to replace the assessment that is included in the module.
