					      First Grade Earth Science Review Sheet
*Please use this sheet as a guide to help your child review for the Earth Science Test. The
test will be given on Monday, _____________________. All study materials can be found
in the Science Folder (some definitions are on this sheet). This study guide is for you and
your student. It does not need to be returned to school. Although some objectives seem
very complex, I assure you the test is geared for first-grade students and based on what I
have taught in class. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns, 246-4644 or
