Your purchase will include a formative, pre-assessment, and a summative, post-assessment for your students. It is created to help determine a first grader's understanding of the Solar System, as it relates to Earth's Place in the Universe.
How much do your students know already about the Sun? Do they know it doesn't move over us through the day? Do they recognize that the moon looks different depending upon which phase it is in? What do they know about patterns of stars?
These simple questions will help you not only determine what they do and do not understand prior to lessons, but how well the lessons have addressed the questions. Linked to the Next Generation Science Standards, these assessments should not only help you tailor your teaching to your class' needs but also tap into their interests and form instruction.
