4-PS3-2 Energy

4-PS3-2   Energy

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

4-PS3-2.Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include quantitative measurements of energy.]
The performance expectation above was developed using the following elements from the NRC document A Framework for K-12 Science Education:

Science and Engineering Practices

Planning and Carrying Out Investigations

Planning and carrying out investigations to answer questions or test solutions to problems in 3–5 builds on K–2 experiences and progresses to include investigations that control variables and provide evidence to support explanations or design solutions.

Disciplinary Core Ideas

PS3.A: Definitions of Energy

PS3.B: Conservation of Energy and EnergyTransfer

Crosscutting Concepts

Energy and Matter

Connections to other DCIs in fourth grade: N/A

Articulation of DCIs across grade-levels:

MS.PS3.A ; MS.PS3.B ; MS.PS4.B

Common Core State Standards Connections:

ELA/Literacy -
W.4.7 Conduct short research projects that build knowledge through investigation of different aspects of a topic. (4-PS3-2),
W.4.8Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; take notes and categorize information, and provide a list of sources. (4-PS3-2)
