4.1: Physical Science

4.1.1: Describe and investigate the different ways in which heat can be generated.

Conduction and Convection
Heat Absorption

4.1.2: Investigate the variety of ways in which heat can be generated and moved from one place to another. Explain the direction the heat moved.

Conduction and Convection
Heat Absorption

4.1.3: Construct a complete circuit through which an electrical current can pass as evidenced by the lighting of a bulb or ringing of a bell.

Circuit Builder

4.1.5: Demonstrate that electrical energy can be transformed into heat, light, and sound.

Energy Conversions

4.2: Earth Science

4.2.1: Demonstrate and describe how smaller rocks come from the breakage and weathering of larger rocks in a process that occurs over a long period of time.

Rock Cycle

4.2.6: Describe ways in which humans have changed the natural environment. Explain if these changes have been detrimental or beneficial.

Pond Ecosystem

4.3: Life Science

4.3.1: Observe and describe how offspring are very much, but not exactly, like their parents or one another. Describe how these differences in physical characteristics among individuals in a population may be advantageous for survival and reproduction.


4.4: Science, Engineering and Technology

4.4.2: Make appropriate measurements to compare the speeds of objects in terms of the distance traveled in a given amount of time or the time required to travel a given distance.

Measuring Motion

4.4.4: Define a problem in the context of motion and transportation. Propose a solution to this problem by evaluating, reevaluating and testing the design. Gather evidence about how well the design meets the needs of the problem. Document the design so that it can be easily replicated.
