Looking for a variety of science activities, experiments, and projects that address the fourth grade NGSS standards? Look no further! This bundle offers curriculum support for all standards: life, physical, and earth. Kids participate in hands-on labs and stations, research projects, and more.
Download the free pacing guide. Then open the individual previews to see how each resource meets the intent of the Next Generation Science Standards* (listed below). Additionally, these resources address all Alaska, Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming standards.
- 4-PS3-1 Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to 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 electric currents.
- 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.
Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Energy Transfer
- 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.
- 4-PS4-3 Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.
From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
- 4-LS1-1 Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
- 4-LS1-2 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.
Earth's Place in the Universe
- 4-ESS1-1 Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in layers to support an explanation for changes in the landscape over time.
- Earth's Systems
- 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.
Earth and Human Activity
- 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.
To create these resources, I first deconstructed the standards, considering:
- what students must know and be able to do to meet the standard
- what students must know and be able to do before tackling the standard
- how to organize learning to build understanding and skills (scaffolding)
- how to extend learning to take learners to new heights
*The following states and Washington, D.C. have adopted Next Generation Science Standards: Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.
