Keep in mind that this assessment was created as a part of a ROCKS UNIT. If you feel that you will benefit from all the assessment related items, I have a ROCKS ASSESSMENT BUNDLE
available at my TPT store. This can save you MONEY :)
It is my hope that this will help you assess your students understanding of rocks, soil, and fossils.
This test specifically assesses Louisiana State Standards 45, 46, 50, 51, and 52. Even if you do not teach in Louisiana, your state standards are probably very similar, as most are.
Please note that there is a comprehension writing portion at the end of this test. This can be used however you would like. It can be treated as a simple short answer or as a full essay prompt. I have even graded it as a writing grade in the past.
As with all of my science based products, I have designed this to make your life easier. Simply print and go! Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
