How To Pass Your Science Benchmark

On Wednesday, January 13, 2016, you will be taking your 2nd Quarter Benchmark Exam in Science. This test will cover anything that has been taught this year in the areas of matter, heat, weather, and force & motion. The key to being successful on this test is: knowing the content and using your strategies. You will have to study. I repeat, you will have to study. You can do this!!!

Where Can I Go to Study?

  • In your Canvas Account, there will be a module on how to review for your benchmark.
  • I have uploaded Snapshots that provide you with the information that was covered in each unit, but in smaller pieces.
  • Each Snapshot also has links to other sites to practice or learn more about the concepts.
  • At the end of each Snapshot, there are about 4-5 questions to test your knowledge.

Don't give up. It's not too hard. It just requires dedication and continued effort.

In the Meantime, You Can Start by Studying Your Last Set of Vocabulary for the Quarter
