Assessment 4: Animal Research Paper

Description of Assessment: After students learn about what animals live in trees and what animals do not during
the Week 2 Lesson, students will be asked to choose an animal that lives in the trees to research about
independently. The students will then draw a picture of their animal on a final draft paper with a paragraph
including the information they researched. They will verbally present this to the class.

Rationale for Assessment: The assessment gives students the opportunity to independently research, collect data,
and write about an animal that spends most of their time in trees.

How the data will be used?: The data will be used as a grade for the student. This grade will be based on the quality
of the final draft and presentation to the class.

Connection to Unit: During Week 3, students will learn about animals that live in trees and animals that do not live
in trees. This assessment will present them with the opportunity to learn about animals that spend time in the
