4 Energy

  • 4-PS3-1 Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

  • 4-PS3-2 Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

  • 4-PS3-3 Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.

  • 4-PS3-4 Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

  • 4-ESS3-1 Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.

4 Waves: Waves and Information

  • 4-PS4-1 Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move.

  • 4-PS4-3 Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.

4 Structure, Function, and Information Processing

4 Earth’s Systems: Processes that Shape the Earth
