ESS: Earth and Space Science

1.1: Earth’s Surface

4.ESS.1: Earth’s surface has specific characteristics and landforms that can be identified.

4.ESS.1.b: Earth’s surface can change due to erosion and deposition of soil, rock or sediment.

Erosion Rates
River Erosion

4.ESS.2: The surface of Earth changes due to weathering.


4.ESS.2.a: Rocks change shape, size and/or form due to water or glacial movement, freeze and thaw, wind, plant growth, acid rain, pollution and catastrophic events such as earthquakes, flooding, and volcanic activity.


LS: Life Science

2.1: Earth’s Living History

4.LS.1: Changes in an organism’s environment are sometimes beneficial to its survival and sometimes harmful.

4.LS.1.a: Ecosystems can change gradually or dramatically. When the environment changes, some plants and animals survive and reproduce and others die or move to new locations.

Forest Ecosystem

4.LS.1.b: Ecosystems are based on interrelationships among and between biotic and abiotic factors. These include the diversity of other organisms present, the availability of food and other resources, and the physical attributes of the environment.

PS: Physical Science

3.1: Electricity, Heat and Matter

4.PS.2: Energy can be transferred from one location to another or can be transformed from one form to another.

4.PS.2.a: Energy transfers from hot objects to cold objects as heat, resulting in a temperature change.

Conduction and Convection
Heat Absorption

4.PS.2.b: Electric circuits require a complete loop of conducting materials through which electrical energy can be transferred.

4.PS.2.c: Electrical energy in circuits can be transformed to other forms of energy, including light, heat, sound and motion. Electricity and magnetism are closely related.
