This 6 page document has three parts; a 2 page assessment for students, a 2 page answer key for teachers, and a 2 page test item analysis. It's specifically aligned with the Essential Standards curriculum and corresponds with the Weather Student Note Taking Booklet for Essential Standards (found on Teachers Pay Teachers). This mini-assessment can be found in a combined pack with two additional mini-assessments that will cover all weather standards, just look through my list of products.
The assessment contains: 6 matching definitions to the correct term questions, 6 multiple choice questions, 4 true/false questions, and 2 short answer questions and covers global patterns, water currents and hurricanes. This includes (a) global winds, prevailing westerlies and jet stream, (b) Gulf Stream, (c) El Nino and La Nina, (d) hurricanes, and (e) how weather far away affects local weather.
Please be on the look out for additional assessments that will cover the other fifth grade science Essential Standards standards.
