Print and go! This product is a quick and straightforward 5 question multiple choice quiz that covers mutualism, commensalism, parasitism, and predator/prey relationships. Students are given examples of two real organisms and how they interact, and must decide which relationship type this represents. This quiz directly assesses NGSS MS-LS2-2.
This is a HALF PAGE quiz so you make half the copies then cut them in half. There are two versions of the quiz that differ only by the order that the questions appear. So, the quizzes have the same questions and the same answer options, but the answer order will be different so students can't copy from a neighbor. This is a Word document, so it is easily editable to better fit your needs or to make modifications for individual student needs.
