How prepared are we for natural disasters? How can we reduce the negative impacts of natural hazards? The Fourth Graders will investigate how to reduce the negative impact of Earth's changes.

    • Use evidence-construct explanation relating speed of object to the energy of that object
    • Make observations-provide evidence that energy transfers from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents
    • Ask questions-predict outcomes about changes in energy when objects collide
    • Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy form one form to another
    • Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move
    • Develop a model that describes light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen
    • Generate-compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information
    • Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction
    • Use a model to describe how animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways
    • Identify evidence (rock formations-layers) to explain landscape change over time
    • Make observations-measurements for evidence weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation
    • Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth's features
    • Obtain information of energy-fuel from natural resources and effects of use
    • Generate-compare solutions to reduce impact of natural Earth processes on humans
    • Define simple problem reflecting need-want with criteria for success
    • Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem
    • Plan-carry out fair tests with variables controlled-failure points 


    • Explain and practice proper hygiene for family members and classmates
    • Learn how to protect the body from physical injury
    • Describe how individuals and groups affect-influence the health of others
    • Discuss ways to make school and community a safer place
    • Demonstrate proper safety procedures on buses and playground
    • Describe-explain the structure-function for human body systems 
    • Explain how health choices affect the performances of the body's systems
    • Differentiate positive-negative effects of health-related actions on the body
