NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas
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: Waves 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.
4-LS1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
4-LS1-1: Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
4-LS1-2: Use a model to describe that animals’ receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways.
4-ESS1: Earth’s Place in the Universe
4-ESS1-1: Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.
4-ESS2: Earth’s Systems
4-ESS2-1: Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.
4-ESS2-2: Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features.
4-ESS3: Earth and Human Activity
4-ESS3-1: Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.
