PS Physical Science

  • 4.PS3 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.PS4 Wavers and their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer

    • 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.PS4.2 Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.

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