How we create our exam questions: Creating Exam Questions

Year  4 ,Term 2 Exam

Literature, poetry, and additional reading: Mood with creative expression
(handicraft, recycled material project, diorama, cooking, land art, or art media: collage, paint, mold, chalk, pencil)

In each of these stories, there is a struggle Midas, Proserpine, Dryope, Venus and Adonis, Kidnapped (both with Davie’s uncle, the men on ship, and between England and Scotland) and Othello, Moor of Venice.

Choose a scene from the story that really is at the heart of the matter so to speak and create something that shows how the character feel.

SS: Government, Citizenship, History, Geography & Bible & Service, Bible & Service: readings, hymn, and Literature, poetry, and additional reading: The Greater Meaning (presentation: Defend, Persuade, judge, compare/contrast, inform, narration)

Throughout history there have been conflicts. Some of them are in recent history like the Indian war lead by Pontiac or the Boston Massacre. Some of them were in ancient history like the cycle that repeats in the book of Judges, Barak and Sisera, and Jesus and the rich young ruler. Several pieces of literature that you’ve read this term includes conflict as well…think about Kidnapped and Robinson Crusoe.

Create a presentation that explains what the conflict is, how it impacts the people, how the conflict influences future events, and how does the conflict impact our lives.

SS: Government, Citizenship, History, Geography & Bible & Service: readings, hymn: View Point with movement
(play, puppet show, music, dance, video (still, animated, silent, movie)

Choose someone that you have studied that has been an example of security or strength at the point in history that they lived. You can choose from George Washington, Abigail Adams, John Adams, Daniel Boon, Benjamin Franklin, Voltaire, John Wesley, George Whitefield, Jonathon Edwards, Philopoeman, and Joshua. Create a play, puppet show, music, dance, or a video that tells about their life.

Consider how the person influenced those around him/her, what were the consequences of their choices, what life was like for him/her, what were his/her concerns and what did he/she do about them, and how were things changed?

Music: composer, folk song, hymn, instrument and Art: artist, technique: Characterization with written expression
(narration, proposal, biography, persuade, problem/solution, instructions, list, poetry, composition)

Artists and Composers influence the people around them. Considering our artist’s (Jacque Louis David) pieces and our composer’s (Franz Shubert) works, we can develop an idea of what they think about certain things and about what they would have us to think too.

Choose one of the pieces from this term and explain what it is about, what the relationship is to the creator of it, what you feel when viewing or listening to it, and why you think the creator made it.

Science: experiments, nature study: Action (Drama, Movement, change) with visual expression
(diagrams, blow-outs, maps, graphic organizers, chart, poster, pamphlet)

You’ve been learning about lots of different science topics this year like the rainforest, soil, rocks, weeds, cardinals, plants in the herb fairy garden, and even steam engines.

All of these things go through a process or a rather chain of events to transform into something else. Some of them continue in a cycle over and over again.

Choose one of your science topics and decide what happens to change it, what the steps are, and how does the change influence the things around it. Create a visual to explain what you’ve learned.

SS: Government, Citizenship, History, Geography: Background with analytical expression
(game, puzzle, crossword, word search, code) 

The Mississippi River has an interesting history and culture. Think about everything you’ve learned from traveling the Mississippi with Minn. What does it look like, how do different people live that are close to it, what was a day like in the life of someone that lived on the Mississippi, what do the homes around it look like, what is some of the history of the river, and how has the river influenced the people and history of our country?

Create a game, puzzle, crossword, word search, or code to help someone else learn about the Mississippi too.
