To better support FL State Science Assessment (SSA) and high-stakes assessment prep in accountability grade-level courses, 3 activities of varying cognitive levels will be crafted for each standard. The activities will be built to assess the three levels of "Evidence of Learning" criteria:

- Developing

- Achieving

- Excelling

The 200+ new Penda science activities will be available to students and teachers in August 2019.
