Aligned to the 2009 Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations by Sally Joseph, Regional Math & Science Center, Winter 2010
Note to Teachers: The assessment of specific Content Expectations is indicated in parentheses following each question (e.g., L.OL.7.22). This resource is not intended to be a comprehensive assessment, but rather to serve as a sample of life science knowledge at the middle school level.
