    Description

    Looking for reading passages about life science? Look no further! EIGHT useful sets of five differentiated passages with open-ended questions for students to explain their thinking OR multiple choice questions to practice their test-taking skills. Each passage also includes a writing prompt and a grading rubric.

    Perfect for informal or formal assessment of your elementary students’ ability to read and write about science! Answer keys included!

    This product aligns to NGSS 3-LS2-1, 3-LS4-1, 3-LS4-3, 3-LS4-4, 3-LS1-1, 3-LS3-1, and 3-PS2-3, plus a bonus set on Rocks and Minerals.

    3-LS2-1 Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive

    3-LS4-1 Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.

    3-LS4-3 Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.

    3-LS4-4 Make a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes and the types of plants and animals that live there may change.

    3-LS1-1 Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.

    3-LS3-1 Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms.

    3-PS2-3 Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.

    Standards

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    NGSS3-LS1-1
    Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death. Changes organisms go through during their life form a pattern. Assessment of plant life cycles is limited to those of flowering plants. Assessment does not include details of human reproduction.
    NGSS3-LS4-4
    Make a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes and the types of plants and animals that live there may change. Examples of environmental changes could include changes in land characteristics, water distribution, temperature, food, and other organisms. Assessment is limited to a single environmental change. Assessment does not include the greenhouse effect or climate change.
    NGSS3-LS3-1
    Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms. Patterns are the similarities and differences in traits shared between offspring and their parents, or among siblings. Emphasis is on organisms other than humans. Assessment does not include genetic mechanisms of inheritance and prediction of traits. Assessment is limited to non-human examples.
    NGSS3-LS4-3
    Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all. Examples of evidence could include needs and characteristics of the organisms and habitats involved. The organisms and their habitat make up a system in which the parts depend on each other.
    NGSS3-LS2-1
    Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.
