Hi, my name is Kelly Watson and I teach 2nd grade. Science is one of my favorite subjects and I enjoy teaching it. We use the Foss learning kits and my students really enjoy the hands on experiments and activities. I feel that there are many types of formative assessments to do throughout the unit, however my team and I have struggled with coming up with a way to assess the students at the end of the unit. What are some summative assessments you have used in science and/or assessments you have used with the Foss kits if you use them in your classroom? Our units we work on throughout the year are plants, solids and liquids and rocks.
