    Are you looking to teach Earth Science to Upper Elementary Students? This bundle covers all the Earth Science standards for fourth-grade NGSS. Students will love these engaging activities and labs. You save 20% by purchasing as a bundle!

    This bundle includes:

    The Rock Cycle

    Pangea: Patterns of Earth's Features

    Earthquake Unit

    Plate Tectonics

    Fossil Fuels and Renewable Energy

    Weathering and Erosion

    Fossils Unit

    I Have Who Has

    Rock Cycle Sorting Cards

    Covers all earth science standards for 4th grade NGSS including Earth’s Systems, Earth’s Place in the Universe and Earth and Human Activity

    This resource is huge and includes hands-on science lessons, nonfiction articles and reading activities, slide shows, response pages, interactive notebook flaps and folds, great science information, and several learning games and sorts that can be easily used as centers.

    This resource is aligned with NGSS for 4th grade.

    4-ESS1-1. Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.

    4-ESS2-1. Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion

    by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.

    4-ESS2-2. Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features.

    4-ESS2-1. Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion

    by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.

    4-ESS3-1. Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses

    affect the environment.

    4-ESS3-2. Generate and compare multiple solutions to reduce the impacts of natural Earth processes on humans.* [

    NGSS4-ESS2-1
    Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation. Examples of variables to test could include angle of slope in the downhill movement of water, amount of vegetation, speed of wind, relative rate of deposition, cycles of freezing and thawing of water, cycles of heating and cooling, and volume of water flow. Assessment is limited to a single form of weathering or erosion.
    NGSS4-ESS3-1
    Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and that their uses affect the environment. Examples of renewable energy resources could include wind energy, water behind dams, and sunlight; non-renewable energy resources are fossil fuels and fissile materials. Examples of environmental effects could include loss of habitat due to dams, loss of habitat due to surface mining, and air pollution from burning of fossil fuels.
    NGSS4-ESS3-2
    Generate and compare multiple solutions to reduce the impacts of natural Earth processes on humans. Examples of solutions could include designing an earthquake resistant building and improving monitoring of volcanic activity. Assessment is limited to earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions.
    NGSS4-ESS2-2
    Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features. Maps can include topographic maps of Earth’s land and ocean floor, as well as maps of the locations of mountains, continental boundaries, volcanoes, and earthquakes.
    NGSS4-ESS1-1
    Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time. Examples of evidence from patterns could include rock layers with marine shell fossils above rock layers with plant fossils and no shells, indicating a change from land to water over time; and, a canyon with different rock layers in the walls and a river in the bottom, indicating that over time a river cut through the rock. Assessment does not include specific knowledge of the mechanism of rock formation or memorization of specific rock formations and layers. Assessment is limited to relative time.
