Students in level 7 and up will be required to complete a science portion of the ITBS. The three main content areas include life science, earth and space science as well as physical science. As the test level increases, so does the difficulty of the material on the science subtest. In preparation for the ITBS, it is recommended that you and your child explore the website “BrainPop”! It is an excellent site that covers many of the specific topics that are highlighted on the ITBS. The student can watch movies, take quizzes and even complete supplementary activities. It is a great way to keep the student engaged and actively thinking about the material. Below is an example of a 3rd grade science question from the ITBS.
Which animal is living in the most natural environment?
