Complete this unit with the “The Sky” Benchmark Assessment.

REMINDERS:

     Review the benchmark results to see where re-teaching and/or clarification is
      needed BEFORE moving on the next unit of study.
     The purpose of the benchmark is to determine if re-teaching is needed NOT
      for grade assignment.
