This assessment addresses the standard of 2.RI.3 which covers the connections between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in a technical procedures in a text. Since this covers three separate concepts I have broken it down into three separate assessments. Many teachers teach the three during different times of the year. It is a big standard that should be broken down for comprehension. This assessment covers only the historical events. Two stories about two events in our past. An invention and the change over time of how news is delivered. Included you have multiple choice questions, short answer, Venn diagram, and a timeline. Although it is only three pages, the assessment covers the standard thoroughly for the historical part. Please look for the science one and the technical assessments for this standard.
