I love these assessments. They go perfectly with the standards. I used them to prepare my students for end-of-year testing and also at the end of units. Google Forms and printable options make them versatile.

The performance expectations in ESS1: Earth’s Place in the Universe, help students formulate an answer to questions such as: “What is Earth’s place in the Universe, What makes up our solar system, and how can the motion of Earth explain seasons and eclipses, and How do people figure out that the Earth and life on Earth have changed through time?” The ESS1 Disciplinary Core Idea from the NRC Framework is broken down into three sub-ideas: the universe and its stars, Earth and the solar system, and the history of planet Earth. Students examine the Earth’s place in relation to the solar system, the Milky Way galaxy, and the universe.
