S.4.GS: General Science Content

(Framing Text): Energy

S.4.GS.1: use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

 Sled Wars

S.4.GS.2: make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

 Circuit Builder
 Conduction and Convection
 Energy Conversions
 Heat Absorption

S.4.GS.3: ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.

 Sled Wars

S.4.GS.4: apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

 Circuit Builder
 Energy Conversions

S.4.GS.5: obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.

 Carbon Cycle
 Energy Conversions
 Greenhouse Effect

(Framing Text): Waves: Waves and Information

S.4.GS.6: develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move.


(Framing Text): Structure, Function, and Information Processing

S.4.GS.9: construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

 Circulatory System
 Digestive System
 Flower Pollination

S.4.GS.10: 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.

 Hearing: Frequency and Volume
 Sight vs. Sound Reactions

(Framing Text): Earth’s Systems: Processes that Shape the Earth

WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.4.GS.13: analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features.
