It comes with five, printable pages: an anticipation guide (pre/post- assessment or warm-up), the answer key, and unit cover. A PowerPoint is also included to guide the discussion as students support or reject why ten different statements are true or false. The statements are to help students and teachers uncover prior knowledge. The pre-assessment may also be used as a warm-up activity. The activity uncovers the following topics:

• Characteristics of Stars

Product details:

-Unit Cover:
Unit cover comes with the standards, benchmarks and a word bank with a list of typical vocabulary words covered throughout the unit.

-Anticipation Guide:
This pre/post-assessment has ten statements students will identify as either true or false and then explain. Students will then be asked to create a title page by writing the unit title and include three pictures with four colors. This provides the teacher an opportunity to discover what students know, don't know, and will learn.

Suggestion: make "True/False" cards for students to hold up and watch how all students are engaged with this fun and collaborative discussion lesson/assessment!
