I have come up with 10 questions modeled after some of the most difficult 4th grade test from 2019 in Texas. The lowest performing question in the list only had 28% correct in the whole state even though the test was not until May! The best scoring was at 60%. What that means is that either the way these skills were taught or the method or manner they were tested were pretty rigorous for the students. I highly recommend that you model these questions with your students as a class or at least allow them to work in groups, being that the level of difficulty is so high. It wouldn't make sense to just assign them to your students as a grade.
Here is the timeline and description of each problem and question if you need a little guidance on certain objectives or another approach.
