This is a PowerPoint assessment for soils, weathering, and erosion covering the 3rd grade Georgia Performance Standard:
S3E1. Students will investigate the physical attributes of rocks and soils. c. Use observation to compare the similarities and differences of texture, particle size, and color in top soils (such as clay, loam or potting soil, and sand).
d. Determine how water and wind can change rocks and soil over time using observation and research.
I give this assessment whole group. I print page 2 of the PowerPoint for each student. Page 2 of the PPT is a printable sheet for students to record their answers. Page 3 is the answer key. The other slides are the questions, 1 question per slide. There are 16 total questions. Fifteen of them are multiple choice and the last question is free response. I then go through the PowerPoint allowing students to record their answers.
You can also use this assessment with ActivVotes or some other form of interactive voting system.
This assessment goes with the following lesson activities at my TPT store:
-Weathering and Erosion Graphic Organizers
-Experimenting with Soils Booklet
