GA--Performance Standards (GPS)
S4CS1.a: Keep records of investigations and observations and do not alter the records later.
S4CS1.c: Offer reasons for findings and consider reasons suggested by others.
S4CS4.b: Use geometric figures, number sequences, graphs, diagrams, sketches, number lines, maps, and stories to represent corresponding features of objects, events, and processes in the real world. Identify ways in which the representations do not match their original counterparts.
S4CS4.c: Identify patterns of change in things - such as steady, repetitive, or irregular change - using records, tables, or graphs of measurements where appropriate.
S4CS7.a: Similar scientific investigations seldom produce exactly the same results, which may differ due to unexpected differences in whatever is being investigated, unrecognized differences in the methods or circumstances of the investigation, or observational uncertainties.
S4CS8.a: Scientific investigations may take many different forms, including observing what things are like or what is happening somewhere, collecting specimens for analysis, and doing experiments.
S4E2.a: Explain the day/night cycle of the earth using a model.
S4E2.b: Explain the sequence of the phases of the moon.
S4E2.c: Demonstrate the revolution of the earth around the sun and the earth’s tilt to explain the seasonal changes.
S4E2.d: Demonstrate the relative size and order from the sun of the planets in the solar system.
S4E3.a: Demonstrate how water changes states from solid (ice) to liquid (water) to gas (water vapor/steam) and changes from gas to liquid to solid.
S4E3.d: Explain the water cycle (evaporation, condensation, and precipitation).
S4E4.b: Using a weather map, identify the fronts, temperature, and precipitation and use the information to interpret the weather conditions.
S4P1.b: Investigate the reflection of light using a mirror and a light source.
S4P3.a: Identify simple machines and explain their uses (lever, pulley, wedge, inclined plane, screw, wheel and axle).
S4P3.b: Using different size objects, observe how force affects speed and motion.
S4P3.d: Demonstrate the effect of gravitational force on the motion of an object.
S4L1.a: Identify the roles of producers, consumers, and decomposers in a community.
S4L1.b: Demonstrate the flow of energy through a food web/food chain beginning with sunlight and including producers, consumers, and decomposers.
