4.1 Organisms Functioning in Their Environment

4.2 Energy Transfer

  • 4.2.1 Construct an explanation to describe the cause and effect relationship between the speed of an object and the energy of that object.

  • 4.2.2 Ask questions and make observations about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.

  • 4.2.3 Plan and carry out an investigation to gather evidence from observations that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electrical currents.

  • 4.2.4 Design a device that converts energy from one form to another.

4.3 Wave Patterns

  • 4.3.1 Develop and use a model to describe the regular patterns of waves.

  • 4.3.2 Develop and use a model to describe how visible light waves reflected from objects enter the eye causing objects to be seen.

  • 4.3.3 Design a solution to an information transfer problem using wave patterns.

4.4 Observable Patterns in the Sky

  • 4.4.1 Construct an explanation that differences in the apparent brightness of the Sun compared to other stars is due to the relative distance (scale) of stars from Earth.

  • 4.4.2 Analyze and interpret data of observable patterns to show that Earth rotates on its axis and revolves around the Sun. Emphasize patterns that provide evidence of Earth's rotation and orbits around the Sun.
