    The Space Exploration Justpardy Review Game PowerPoint has a similar concept to the game seen on TV

    Game Play Suggestion

    • Set up tables in front of the classroom, 1 table per team.
    • Divide the class up into 3-5 team, depending on class size.
    • Have each student taking a turn coming up that teams table at the front of the class.
    • Rotate, so each team gets to pick the Answer on the screen.
    • Each team representative in the front of the class writes down their answer.
    • For each correct answer the team gets a point.
    • The team with the most points when the game ends wins.

    • The PowerPoint is fully editable. This will allow you to modify the lesson to your individual classroom needs. (You cannot copy or modify any part of this lesson to offer others for free or for sale.)

    The Space Exploration Assessment Pack includes TWO Quizzes and TWO Tests. These both tie in with my other Space Exploration lessons that are available at my TpT Store.

    Quiz: Space Environment

    • Two True/False type questions.
    • Eight matching type questions.
    • Answer key provided.

    Quiz: Unmanned Space Exploration

    • Ten matching type questions.
    • Answer key provided.

    Test: Space Exploration

    • Thirty multiple choice type questions.
    • Two open response type questions (students are instructed to answer one of the two).
    • Answer key provided

    The Space Exploration Portfolio/Reflective Journal is an assessment tool where the STUDENT picks how they want to show you they have mastery of the subject.

    The students are given 15 different objectives they need to show mastery of. They do this by completing a project. They type is of their choice. These are some suggestions:

    • Make a collage
    • Comprise a song or rap
    • Construct a mobile
    • Make a poster
    • Assemble a scrap book
    • Traditional answer in writing (in a "project" form)
    • Other ideas you have (check with me first)

    I give this type of assignment the very first day of the unit. It is my belief that the teacher needs to let the students know exactly what they are expected to know by the time the unit is over. This also gives them time to work on their project.

    This assignment can be an additional assessment for students or the main assessment used.
