Product Description
This test is based on the Georgia 5th grade standards for physical science. It includes 19 questions on physical changes, chemical changes and the concept that an object is the sum of its parts (including a basic understanding of atoms and molecules). The test includes a variety of multiple choice and open-ended response questions to test for true understanding.

Georgia 5th Grade Performance Standards covered:
S5P1 Students will verify that an object is the sum of its parts.
a. Demonstrate that the mass of an object is equal to the sum of its parts by manipulating and measuring different objects made of various parts.
b. Investigate how common items have parts that are too small to be seen without magnification.
S5P2 Students will explain the difference between a physical change and a chemical change.
a. Investigate physical changes by separating mixtures and manipulating (cutting, tearing, folding) paper to demonstrate examples of physical change.
b. Recognize that the changes in state of water (water vapor/steam, liquid, ice) are due to temperature differences and are examples of physical change.
c. Investigate the properties of a substance before, during, and after a chemical reaction to find evidence of change.
S5CS8b Clear and active communication is an essential part of doing science. It enables scientists to inform others about their work, expose their ideas to criticism by other scientists and stay informed about scientific discoveries around the world.

I have used this test successfully with my students over the past several years with outstanding success. Online review games and resources to help students prepare for the test(s) are available for free at www.jonathanfeicht.com.
