SC.4.E Earth and Space Science

  • SC.4.E.5 Earth in Space and Time

    • SC.4.E.5.1 Observe that the patterns of stars in the sky stay the same although they appear to shift across the sky nightly, and different stars can be seen in different seasons.

    • SC.4.E.5.2 Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month.

    • SC.4.E.5.3 Recognize that Earth revolves around the Sun in a year and rotates on its axis in a 24-hour day.

    • SC.4.E.5.4 Relate that the rotation of Earth (day and night) and apparent movements of the Sun, Moon, and stars are connected.

    • SC.4.E.5.5 Investigate and report the effects of space research and exploration on the economy and culture of Florida.

  • SC.4.E.6 Earth Structures

    • SC.4.E.6.1 Identify the three categories of rocks: igneous, (formed from molten rock); sedimentary (pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms); and metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure).

    • SC.4.E.6.2 Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color, and recognize the role of minerals in the formation of rocks.

    • SC.4.E.6.3 Recognize that humans need resources found on Earth and that these are either renewable or nonrenewable.

    • SC.4.E.6.4 Describe the basic differences between physical weathering (breaking down of rock by wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants) and erosion (movement of rock by gravity, wind, water, and ice).

    • SC.4.E.6.5 Investigate how technology and tools help to extend the ability of humans to observe very small things and very large things.

    • SC.4.E.6.6 Identify resources available in Florida (water, phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon, wind, and solar energy).
