Grade Level Expectations
4.1.1: Demonstrate that a force can cause an object to start moving, stop, or change speed or direction.
4.1.2: Use measurement tools and standard units to compare and contrast the motion of objects such as toy cars, balls, model rockets or planes in terms of change in position, speed and direction.
4.1.3: Design and conduct experiments to determine how the motion of objects is related to the mass of the object and the strength of the force applied.
4.1.4: Describe how friction forces caused by air resistance or interactions between surface materials affect the motion of objects.
4.2.1: Give examples of ways that living and nonliving things are interdependent within an ecosystem.
4.2.2: Draw diagrams showing how the sun?s energy enters and is transferred from producers to consumers in a local land or aquatic food chain.
4.2.3: Design and conduct simple investigations to record interactions among producers, consumers, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores and decomposers in an ecosystem.
4.2.4: Analyze food webs to describe how energy is transferred from plants to various animals in an ecosystem.
4.4.1: Construct complete (closed) and incomplete (open) series circuits in which electrical energy is transformed into heat, light, sound and/or motion energy.
4.4.2: Draw labeled diagrams of complete and incomplete circuits and explain necessary components and how components must be arranged to make a complete circuit.
4.4.3: Predict whether diagrammed circuit configurations will light a bulb.
4.4.4: Develop a method for testing conductivity, and analyze data to generalize about which materials are good electrical conductors and which are good insulators.
4.4.6: Describe materials that are attracted by magnets.
4.4.8: Investigate how magnets react with other magnets and analyze findings to identify patterns in the interactions between north and south poles of magnets.
4.4.9: Give examples of uses of magnets (e.g., motors, generators, household devices).
