Teach 5th Grade Science in Ohio? After having no luck finding some simple progress checks for my students, I designed these simple, focused formative assessments to check my students progress. There are 4 half-sheet FAs that address: the sun as a star, the size of the sun in relationship to other stars and Earth, the difference in stars brightness with reference to constellations, characteristics of the sun, and why our sun is a 'sun' and not a regular star. I have also added an answer key and additional worksheet if you would prefer to use that as well. Enjoy!
