Grade 4

Welcome to the Fourth Grade!

In grade 4, students observe and interpret patterns related to the transfer of matter and energy on Earth, in physical interactions, and in organisms. Students learn that animals’ internal and external structures support life, growth, behavior, and reproduction. Grade 4 students interpret patterns of change over time as related to the deposition and erosion in landscape formation. They study today’s landscapes to provide evidence for past processes. Students learn about energy—its motion, transfer, and conversion—in different physical contexts. They work through the engineering design process, focusing on developing solutions by building, testing, and redesigning prototypes to fit a specific purpose. Each domain relates to the use of matter and energy over time and for specific purposes.

We kick things off in 4th grade by learning some biology. We are starting to talk about the structure and functions of different body parts for plants and animals. We start by looking at plants and will move on to animals in the first few months.
