The only thing that threw me off about this measure was the sudden switch from general sciencey things approached from a variety of angles to Physics. I'm not sure if Physics was a particular focus for this study, but as a general capture physics seems too specific for 5th grade science. This measure might also benefit from more proof reading. The worst typo is item 30 where it says "move" instead of "more" but also the use of "take in" when I believe take would be more natural sounding. This is in the just physics section -- perhaps it demonstrates how you can pick any science domain? If so clearer instructions might be nice. I do think the majority of the phrasing would sound right to elementary school kids and that's super important when working with that age group.
