Assessments for ALL ten Kindergarten Next Generation Science Standards in ONE place!!!!! This is a 21 page document in PDF form that has 1 page assessments for each standard with answer keys INCLUDED! These can also be used as classroom activities if you choose not to use them as assessments. The standards are listed below:
K-PS2-1 Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
K-PS2-2 Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
K-LS1-1 Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.
K-ESS3-1 Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants and animals (including humans) and the places they live.
K-ESS2-2 Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs.
K-ESS3-3 Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.
K-ESS2-1 Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.
K-ESS3-2 Ask questions to obtain information about the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to, severe weather.
K-PS3-1 Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.
K-PS3-2 Use tools and materials provided to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.
