PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This test is the seventh in a series of ten tests that cover all of Georgia's 5th Grade Social Studies standards. The test includes a variety of question types about America's involvement in World War II. I have used this test along with other tests in this series very successfully. I currently teach at a Title I school and still had nearly 70% of my students exceed state standards in 2014. Obviously there is far more to my students' success than just a test, but I know that if students can show mastery of the material on these tests, they have a firm understanding of Georgia's 5th grade social studies standards. This test can be used by teachers in other states, but it is designed specifically to measure mastery of Georgia's social studies standards.

This test is based on these 5th Grade Georgia Standards:
SS5H6 The student will explain the reasons for America’s involvement in World War II.
a. Describe Germany’s aggression in Europe and Japanese aggression in Asia.
b. Describe major events in the war in both Europe and the Pacific; include Pearl Harbor, Iwo Jima, D-Day, VE and VJ Days, and the Holocaust.
c. Discuss President Truman’s decision to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
d. Identify Roosevelt, Stalin, Churchill, Hirohito, Truman, Mussolini, and Hitler.
e. Describe the effects of rationing and the changing role of women and African-Americans; include "Rosie the Riveter" and the Tuskegee Airmen.
f. Explain the U.S. role in the formation of the United Nations.
SS5G1b Locate important man-made places: Pearl Harbor, Hawaii
SS5E1a Describe opportunity costs and their relationship to decision-making across time (such as decisions to ration goods during WWII).
SS5E1f Give examples of technological advancements and their impact on business productivity during the development of the United States.
