Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.*

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move.

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.*

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
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.

Performance Expectation

Grade: 
3-5
4
Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.
