1st Trimester

 

 

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-ESS3-2. Generate and compare multiple solutions to reduce the impacts of natural Earth processes on humans. 
4.ESS3-1. Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fossil fuels are derived from natural resources, and their uses affect the environment.

2nd Trimester

 

 

 


 

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-ESS2-1. 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- 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-PS4-1. Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move. 
4-PS4-3. Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.

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

3-5-ETS1-1. Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost. 
3-5-ETS1-2. Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem. 
3-5-ETS1-3. Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled, and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
