These Third Grade Science Assessments are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards for third grade and compliment our 5E Instructional Units
. There are two assessments or tests per NGSS standard. There is also a third assessment that combines those two tests.
Assessments include matching, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank and true and false statements. The combined assessment also includes a draw and label task.

What is the 5E Instructional Model?
The 5E Model is student-led, with the teacher acting mainly as the facilitator. Through open-ended questions, real-life experiences, guided investigations, and research, the students gain a deep understanding of the scientific topics that are covered in the lessons. Each stage of the model serves as a foundation for the next, creating a coherent model that frames lessons, activities, and units.
