  • Bundle Description
  • StandardsNEW

This bundle combines hands on activities and an informational PowerPoint designed to address 4th grade NGSS standards for Physical Science.

Standards Addressed in this bundle:

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 allows objects to be seen.

Hands on activities combined with reading and writing activities help students develop a conceptual understanding for some of the harder science topics in elementary school.

Word Wall Cards and Activities: Word cards, definitions and suggested activities to reinforce key vocabulary from the unit.

Good Vibrations: Students make a simple straw oboe to investigate vibrations and sound

Waves: Students read about waves, study a diagram, and answer questions.

Making Waves: Student use a jump rope to create waves with specific amplitudes and frequencies.

What’s That Sound: Students make a simple kazoo and experiment with sound.

Pan Pipes: Students make Pan Pipes out of straws.

How Do Our Ears Hear? This informational reading passage, diagram, and questions is designed to explain how our ears process sound.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall: Students investigate reflection of light using a mirror.

How Does Light Travel? Students discover which materials are opaque, translucent, and transparent.

Light Moves: Students investigate how light appears to bend as it enters different mediums such as water.

Visible Spectrum: Students see “rainbows” on a CD and learn about the visible spectrum.

How Do Eyes See? This informational reading passage, diagram, and questions is designed to explain how our eyes process light.

Post Test and Grading Rubric

The PowerPoint is broken into two parts; Part 1 begins with sound and details how sound is formed from waves. Key vocabulary words are introduced in an interactive way, so that the PowerPoint can be more student-centered. One slide shows pictures of various sounds and students will determine what the amplitude and wavelength would look like for each. A sound video is also included. For part 2, the slides on light begin with determining how light travels based on pictures. Key vocabulary words are introduced such as reflections, refraction, and the 3 classifications of the amount of light that passes through objects. (opaque, translucent, and transparent). A cool video is included that shows the students how we see color.

Notes for the teacher are included on almost every slide with suggestions on how to make the slides interactive. A notes page is included for students to complete throughout the PowerPoint or as an assessment.

NGSS4-PS4-1
Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move. Examples of models could include diagrams, analogies, and physical models using wire to illustrate wavelength and amplitude of waves. Assessment does not include interference effects, electromagnetic waves, non-periodic waves, or quantitative models of amplitude and wavelength.
NGSS4-PS4-2
Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen. Assessment does not include knowledge of specific colors reflected and seen, the cellular mechanisms of vision, or how the retina works.
