Lone STAAR Launch - The Only 8th Grade Science STAAR Review You'll Ever Need

What's the last thing you want to do in April and May? For me, it was having to prepare a comprehensive review for my 8th-grade science students to get them ready for their end-of-year STAAR test.

My goal has always been to make your life easier. I've teamed up with Scott and Natalie from the Science Duo and we have created the ultimate STAAR review for your students.

The Lone STAAR Launch is a 15-day, student-led review that will allow your students to build their confidence prior to taking the 8th-grade science STAAR test. All the heavy-prep has been done for you.

What's Included in the Lone STAAR Launch?

Digital Versions Allow Flexibility

Every station includes a digital version and a paper version that allow for flexibility.

The digital versions do not require any additional supplies and students can work through them independently with PowerPoint or Google Slides.

Lone STAAR Launch Highlights

  • 54 Student-led Stations

    Each of the 54 stations includes an engaging activity, an extension, and reflection questions that are aligned with the TEKS.

    Hands-on and digital versions are included with each station.

    The student-led stations cover all of the middle school science readiness and supporting standards.
  • STAAR Practice Questions

    A unique STAAR-formatted question for each station is included.

    Paper and digital versions are included.

    A STAAR practice mastery sheet will help students measure their level of understanding for each standard.
  • Four Original Escape Rooms

    To take engagement to the next level, we've included four brand-new escape rooms. The escape rooms cover all readiness standards for reporting categories 1-4.

    Implementation is a breeze, even if you've never run an escape room before.
