This is a physical science unit addressing the NGSS standards for 4th grade physical science. This resource includes lesson plans, informational text articles, slide shows, response pages and interactive notebook inserts. The lessons within these units are aligned with NGSS for 4th grade physical science, These units and lessons contain nonfiction passages so that students can practice reading scientific information. There are hands-on activities in all these lessons.
These resources are aligned with the following NGSS for 4th grade:
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
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-PS4-2. Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye.
NGSS Science and Engineering Practices Students Will Use Include:
Developing and Using Models
Planning and Carrying Out Investigations
Engaging in argument from evidence
Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
NGSS Crosscutting Concepts addressed include:
Cause and Effect
Scale, Proportion and Quantify
System and System Models
Structure and Function
Stability and Change
