NGSS 5th Grade Science Benchmark Test Prep and Game Cards
This PowerPoint contains 320 Science Grade 5 questions and answer slides. It covers NGSS PHYSICAL, EARTH and LIFE science standards that are taught throughout grades 3rd through 5th, but are tested on the 5th grade benchmark.
As a 5th grade science teacher you are responsible for content previous teachers were supposed to teach in the earlier grades. As I experienced, science in the earlier grades was overlooked because it was not tested until the 5th grade, or my students had “forgot” a lot of the content.
I use this as a review game. I have included the rules and directions for grudge ball, and have also included 32 Bazinga action cards and directions for that game as well. If you prefer not to use as a review game, this can be used for a ‘Problem of the Day’ or whole class test preparation. If I use as a Problem of the Day, I require that my students give me the correct answer, but also require that they explain why the remaining three options cannot be correct.
I have purposely broken it into each separate area of science. The PPT starts with 124 Physical Science slides, moves on to 110 Earth and Space Science slides and finishes with 84 Life Science slides. That way if you are strong in one area or didn’t get all content from another area, you can pick and choose which areas of review your students need.
I have a lot of experience with benchmark state testing. When I taught 8th grade science, I was consistently ranked the 2nd or 3rd highest public school in the state. I moved down to teach 5th grade science and after my first year, moved up 18 spots, from last place in my county!
