Checks for Understanding (Formative/Summative Assessment)

0507.1.1 Cells - Label drawings of plant and animal cells
0507.1.2 Cell Structures - Compare and contrast the basic structures and functions of plant and animal cells
0507.2.1 Relationships - Evaluate producer/consumer, predator/prey, and parasite/host relationships
0507.2.2 Ecosystem - Classify interspecific relationships within an ecosystem as mutualism, commensalism, or parasitism
0507.2.3 Create a Model - Create a simple model illustrating the interspecific relationships within an ecosystem
0507.2.4 Relationships in Ecosystem - Analyze basic information from a body of text to identify key issues or assumptions about the relationships among organisms in an ecosystem
0507.2.5 Effect on Environment - Create a poster to illustrate how human activities and natural disasters affect the environment
0507.3.1 Photosynthesis - Identify the cell structures that enable plants to conduct photosynthesis
0507.3.2 Food Webs - Design a graphic organizer that illustrates the difference between plants and animals in the movement of food energy through an ecosystem
0507.4.1 Genetics - Explain how genetic information is transmitted from parents to offspring
0507.4.2 Traits - Create a chart that compares hereditary and environmental traits
0507.4.3 Birthmarks - Distinguish between a scar and a birthmark in terms of their origins
0507.5.1 Classification - Classify animals according to their physical characteristics
0507.5.2 Adaptation - Design a model to illustrate how an animalís physical characteristics enable it to survive in a particular environment
0507.5.3 Fossil - Identify the processes associated with fossil formation
0507.5.4 Geologic History - Use fossil evidence to describe an environment from the past
0507.5.5 Fossil History - Use fossils to match a previously existing organism with one that exists today

State Performance Indicators
