*Assessment contains 8 multiple choice questions and 1 short response question (all reflecting the Common Core Standards)
**Students record their short response answer on the foldable Earth template provided. After that? They color, cut, and fold their little Earth men and women for classroom display.
*** Student won’t even realize they’re reading complex text, as the information provided about Earth Day is very engaging.
****Because “reading levels” are quite subjective; this passage can be used for students – grades 3 through 5. Take a look at the first page of the text in the preview text so that you can get an idea of the complexity level.
***** Like all of our test prep material, you will find that this non-fiction (informational text) passage will mimic the intensity of the complex text that your students will encounter on this year’s Common Core Standardized Reading Exams. The students will be required to engage in active and close reading in order to be successful. All paragraphs are numbered for questions that require the student to “look back” and analyze a particular aspect of the text.
Grades 6-8 version available too!
