When I moved to Tennessee last year and began teaching, I was overwhelmed with the amount of social studies standards for 3rd grade! It was a ton!! I was also overwhelmed by the lack of assessments that were simple enough for an 8 year old to complete, independently, especially at the beginning of third grade.
One of the standards in social studies is for students to identify the state symbols of Tennessee. To teach this standard, I used a slide show that introduced the symbols, then we created a state symbols book, and finally I administered a short, 10 question assessment to test my students’ learning.
The assessment is available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store, and it is called the Tennessee State Symbols Quiz.
