Performance Task based on SBAC performance tasks.
This is a great way to practice CCSS with your students!!! The tasks focus on reading, writing, comprehension, and more, but with a plant theme in which they are asked to research and write an article for the school newspaper. This is a fun way to get students thinking critically about sources and using the skills they have learned. The articles for this performance task are copyrighted, so the links to access the articles are included in a separate document within the zipped product.
