Easy Ways to Assess Your Student's Earth Science Knowledge

As we near the end of the year, I want to share with you a new resource that I have been working on. It is a growing bundle of Earth Science Warm Ups or Formative Assessments.

Easy Ways to Assess Your Student's Earth Science Knowledge

I have written quite a bit already on how I use warm ups in my class, and how important I believe formative assessment is, for both the teacher and students. I also have several emails on the topic, so feel free to sign up for my email list, either by clicking here, or the sign up box on this page, if you haven’t already, to be sure you get those.

Some of my formative assessment posts:
With these in mind, I am most of the way through creating a year long set of Earth Science formative assessment task cards. They can be really useful to you for a variety of reasons:

They are aligned to my curriculum guide, and student learning objectives, which are also aligned to New York State.

They are available in different formats:
  • Google Slides to project on the board, if you want to have students record their answers on separate paper.
  • Interactive Google Slides so that students can type directly onto the slide, or move pieces around to answer the prompts.
  • Printable PDF’s so that they can be used as task cards.
  • Instructions are included to use with PowerPoint, and to use with several other digital platforms.
  • These have an emphasis on understanding diagrams and key vocabulary.
  • These work work well as daily warm-ups, tickets out, review activities, task cards, even an early finisher activity. Task cards have so many uses.
  • They are a full year set of 200 task cards, so you can use one every day, or pick and choose how you want to use them and have a big selection. 
I don’t know about you, but it can be hard to consistently come up with questions. It is a huge time saver, and sanity saver to have a bank of questions ready to go. I hope these Earth Science Formative Assessments are helpful to you.

If you have specific questions, or suggestions, please feel free to comment or email me!
