Week 25 Science Lessons: Ecosystems Unit Test

Grade 5

Week Twenty-Five Lessons

This week we will be reviewing, testing , and goal setting! Make the review fun and the memories will stick! Unit Test reviews are just as important throughout the year. The goal is not to memorize for the test, but to refresh their memory and help make those memories permanent.

Lesson Notes

I grade tests without marking the correct answer. The students use a pen or colored pencil to review the test when we go over it as a class. They write down the explanations we have for each test question.
