An assessment task in which students will identify the importance of all to care for our natural environment.
Revise the content of the unit. Refer to maps, diagrams and retrieval charts made that demonstrate the student’s prior learning. Provide the students with opportunities to describe and explain places that are special to them and why.
Project the People Live in Places Assessmentassessment on the board and read through each activity. Answer any questions the students may have. Provide each student with their own copy of the assessment.
Allow the students to independently work through the assessment; identifying special places, who uses them and how they are to be cared for. As the students are completing the task, provide support by referring them to the special places identified in the tuning in phase.
Once the students have completed the assessment, allow them to share their learning with a partner. Encourage more confident students to explain why their partner’s place is special.
Collect the worksheets in order to assess each student’s understanding of the unit objectives.
Encourage more capable students to write about how they would feel if they could no longer access this place.
