Do you need more STAAR aligned practice for your students? Make your test prep interdisciplinary with this product! Included is an engaging passage about the internment of Japanese-American citizens during World War II, an often-overlooked aspect of social studies instruction, and five STAAR-aligned questions. Three of the questions focus on TEKS 5.11A (main idea), and the remaining questions focus on 5.11D (text features) and 5.Fig19E (summary). I have also included four open-ended questions that ask for students to think critically about this historical event.
This product can be used as independent practice, a quick assessment, or as a review game. I have included the link to my Kahoot! game that I used with my students after they read the article and answered the questions.
This product is designed to match the 5th grade reading TEKS exactly, but could be used as enrichment for 4th graders or as remediation for 6th graders. An answer key is included.
