Product Description
An entire year of authentic assessment built around the fifth grade science standards (also works for many 6th and 7th grade units)

As is true for many teachers, I became tired of using multiple choice worksheets to understand where my students were at in their science understanding. This gives you an easy three leveled system that gets harder the further you go. You can use it as homework, classwork, or a simple assessment. I am using it in conjunction with a flipped science classroom. Triple Jump Worksheets are designed to give students an easy set of vocabulary questions, a harder set of interpretive challenges and then a writing assignment or puzzle related to the topic.
