GET SMARTER SCIENCE
What is this site all about?
This site is designed for students to be used as an interactive quiz. The student is given the grade option as well as the topic option, so direct instructions would need to be given so they could navigate the quiz on their own as extra practice or as a end of the unit quiz. The other topics offered for science are life sciences and natural sciences.
Grade 3 core unit on Earth and this can be used when studying the environment
How would I use this in my classroom?
I would use it for an end of the unit quiz or possible a pre-quiz at the beginning that we would all take together on a projection computer. I would be careful to make sure to set my students up for success in doing some pre-teaching. Some of the questions are not "common sense" or can be figured out, but they do require prior knowledge and I wouldn't want to discourage them from the unit right off the bat by giving too hard of questions.
