Grade Level Expectations
4.1.2: Use measurement tools and standard units to compare and contrast the motion of common 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 an object 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.
4.2.2: 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.
4.2.5: Distinguish between naturally occurring changes in ecosystems and those caused by human activity.
4.3.1: Describe the role of heat energy (i.e., heating and cooling) in the continuous cycling of water between the earth and the atmosphere through evaporation, condensation and precipitation.
4.4.2: Draw labeled diagrams of complete and incomplete circuits, explain necessary components and how components can 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 that metals are generally good electrical conductors and nonmetals are not.
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).
