WA.1.Systems (SYS)

Systems (SYS)
4-5.SYS. Complex Systems: In prior grades students learned to think systematically about how the parts of objects, plants, and animals are connected and work together. In grades 4-5 students learn that systems contain smaller (sub-) systems, and that systems are also parts of larger systems. The same ideas about systems and their parts learned in earlier grades apply to systems and subsystems. In addition, students learn about inputs and outputs and how to predict what may happen to a system if the system's inputs are changed. The concept of a hierarchy of systems provides a conceptual bridge for students to see the connections between mechanical systems (e.g., cities) and natural systems (e.g., ecosystems).
4-5.SYSA. Students know that systems contain subsystems.
4-5.SYSA.1. Students are expected to identify at least one of the subsystems of an object, plant, or animal (e.g., an airplane contains subsystems for propulsion, landing, and control).

WA.2.Inquiry (INQ)

Inquiry (INQ)
4-5.INQ. Planning Investigations: In prior grades students learned to conduct different kinds of investigations. In grades 4-5 students learn to plan an investigation, which involves first selecting the appropriate kind of investigation to match the question being asked. One type of investigation is a controlled experiment (a -fair test). Others include systematic observation, field studies, and models and simulations. Students can also collect, display, and interpret data; summarize results; draw conclusions from evidence; and communicate their findings. Students are aware that scientific explanations emphasize evidence, involve logical arguments, and are consistent with scientific principles and theories. Students are also expected to communicate their findings and to critique the investigations of others with respect and intellectual honesty. These capabilities are essential in preparing students for the more extensive and rigorous investigations that they will be planning and conducting in middle school.
4-5.INQC. Investigate: Students know that an experiment involves a comparison. For an experiment to be valid and fair, all of the things that can possibly change the outcome of the experiment should be kept the same, if possible.
4-5.INQC.1. Students are expected to conduct or critique an experiment, noting when the experiment might not be fair because things that might change the outcome are not kept the same.

WA.3.Application (APP)

Application (APP)
4-5.APP. Different Technologies: In earlier grades, students learned to design a solution to a simple problem, using an elementary version of the technological design process. In grades 4-5 students learn to distinguish between science and technology and to work individually and collaboratively to produce a product of their own design. They learn that people in different cultures use different materials and technologies to meet their same daily needs and increase their understanding of tools and materials. Students also develop their abilities to define problems that can be solved by modifying or inventing technologies, to create and test their designs, and to communicate what they learned. These capabilities help students understand the value of science and technology to meet human needs and provide them with valuable skills for everyday life.
4-5.APPA. Students know that technology involves changing the natural world to meet human needs or wants.

WA.4.Life Science

Life Science
ES1. Earth in Space (ES1)
4-5.ES1. Earth in Space: In prior grades students learned that observing and recording the position and appearance of objects in the sky make it possible to discover patterns of motion. In grades 4-5 students learn the full implications of the spherical-Earth concept and Earth's place in the Solar System. The upper elementary years are an excellent time for study of the Earth in space because students have the intellectual capacity to grasp the spherical-Earth concept and the relationship between the Earth and Sun. This major set of concepts is a stepping-stone to a later understanding of all concepts in astronomy and space science and an essential element to further understanding of how the Earth and other planets formed.
4-5.ES1A. Students know that earth is approximately spherical in shape. Things on or near the Earth are pulled toward Earth's center by the force of gravity.
4-5.ES1A.1. Students are expected to give evidence to support the idea that Earth is spherical in shape (e.g., research Earth images from space, shape of Earth's shadow on the Moon during an eclipse of the Moon).

ES2. Earth Systems, Structures, and Processes (ES2)
4-5.ES2. Formation of Earth Materials: In prior years, students learned that water plays an essential role in Earth systems, including shaping landforms and weather. In grades 4-5 students learn how Earth materials change and how they can be used for various purposes. They learn that Earth materials include solid rocks and soil, water, and gases of the atmosphere. People use many of these materials as resources to meet their needs. One of the most important Earth resources is soil, since people depend on fertile soil to grow food. The processes that produce soils offer an excellent opportunity for students to understand how Earth materials change gradually over time, and provide a solid grounding for later study of landforms and large-scale changes of Earth's surface that students will learn in middle school.
4-5.ES2A. Students know that earth materials include solid rocks and soil, water, and gases of the atmosphere. Materials have different physical and chemical properties which make them useful in different ways. Earth materials provide many of the resources that humans use.

ES3. Earth History (ES3)
4-5.ES3. Focus on Fossils: In prior years, students learned that fossils represent the remains of plants and animals that lived long ago. In grades 4-5 students learn that fossils also provide evidence of environmental conditions that existed when the fossils formed. Most fossils are imprints formed when plants or animals died in a watery environment and were covered with mud that eventually hardened into rock. Fossils can also form in other ways, as when dissolved minerals seep into a piece of wood and harden into rock, or an animal is frozen in ice that never thaws. Fossils provide evidence of the kinds of plants and animals that lived on Earth in the past, as well as environmental conditions that prevailed at the time the fossils formed.
4-5.ES3A. Students know that different kinds of events caused the formation of different kinds of fossils.
4-5.ES3A.1. Students are expected to describe an event that could cause the formation of a given fossil (e.g., the plant or animal may have been buried in sediment that hardened into rock and left an imprint, or dissolved minerals may have seeped into a piece of wood and hardened into rock).

LS2. Ecosystems (LS2)
4-5.LS2. Food Webs: In prior grades students learned that ecosystems include both plant and animal populations as well as nonliving resources, and that plants and animals depend on one another and on the nonliving resources in their ecosystem to survive. In grades 4-5 students learn how ecosystems change and how these changes affect the capacity of an ecosystem to support populations. Some changes in ecosystems are caused by the organisms themselves. The ability of any organism to survive will depend on its characteristics and behaviors. Humans also play an important role in many ecosystems and may reduce negative impacts through thoughtful use of natural resources. Concepts related to ecosystems, including food webs, make it possible for students to understand the interrelationships among various forms of life and between living things and their environment.
4-5.LS2A. Students know that an ecosystem includes all of the populations of living organisms and nonliving physical factors in a given area. Living organisms depend on one another and the nonliving physical factors in their ecosystem to help them survive.
4-5.LS2A.1. Students are expected to identify the living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.

LS3. Biological Evolution (LS3)
4-5.LS3. Heredity and Adaptation: In prior grades students learned about variations in inherited characteristics. In grades 4-5 students learn that some differences in inherited characteristics may help plants and animals survive and reproduce. Sexual reproduction results in offspring that are never identical to either of their parents and therefore contributes to a species' ability to adapt to changing conditions. Heredity is a key feature of living plants and animals that enables changes in characteristics to be passed on and for species to change over time. Fossils provide evidence of what ancient extinct plants and animals looked like.
4-5.LS3A. Students know that in any ecosystem, some populations of organisms thrive and grow, some decline, and others do not survive at all.

PS1. Force and Motion (PS1)
4-5.PS1. Measurement of Force and Motion: In prior grades students learned that forces work not only to push and pull objects, but also to affect objects when they are dropped or thrown. In grades 4-5 students learn how to use basic tools to measure the fundamental quantities of force, time, and distance. Force can be measured with a spring scale. Distance and time can be measured by a variety of methods, and the results can be used to compare the motion of two objects. Focusing on accuracy of measurement, recording of data and logical conclusions from the data provide the foundation for future years when students will undertake more complex investigations.
4-5.PS1A. Students know that the weight of an object is a measure of how strongly it is pulled down toward the ground by gravity. A spring scale can measure the pulling force.
4-5.PS1A.1. Students are expected to use a spring scale to measure the weights of several objects accurately. Explain that the weight of an object is a measure of the force of gravity on the object. Record the measurements in a table.

PS2. Matter: Properties and Change (PS2)
4-5.PS2. States of Matter: In prior grades students learned to identify different physical properties of matter and to realize that an object may be made from several different types of materials. In grades 4-5 students learn that a given substance may exist in different states-solid, liquid, and gas-and that many substances can be changed from one state to another. This understanding of matter lays the foundation for later explanations of matter in terms of atomic theory.
4-5.PS2A. Students know that substances can exist in different physical states-solid, liquid, and gas. Many substances can be changed from one state to another by heating or cooling.
4-5.PS2A.1. Students are expected to explain that water is still the same substance when it is frozen as ice or evaporated and becomes a gas.

PS3. Energy: Transfer, Transformation and Conservation (PS3)
4-5.PS3. Heat, Light, Sound, and Electricity: In prior grades students learned to identify several different forms of energy. In grades 4-5 students build on their intuitive understanding of energy and learn how heat, light, sound, and electrical energy are generated and can be transferred from place to place. For example, they can observe that energy of motion can be transferred from one object to another. They can observe how heat energy is generated and moves from a warmer to a cooler place, and how sound can be produced by vibrations in the throat or guitar strings or other forms of vibration. They can also see that electrical energy can do many things, including producing light, heat, and sound, and can make things move. This introduction to the many forms of energy helps to prepare students for later studies of energy transformation and conservation.
4-5.PS3A. Students know that energy has many forms, such as heat, light, sound, motion, and electricity.
4-5.PS3A.1. Students are expected to identify different forms of energy (e.g., heat, light, sound, motion, electricity) in a system.

Earth and Space Science
ES1. Earth in Space (ES1)
4-5.ES1. Earth in Space: In prior grades students learned that observing and recording the position and appearance of objects in the sky make it possible to discover patterns of motion. In grades 4-5 students learn the full implications of the spherical-Earth concept and Earth's place in the Solar System. The upper elementary years are an excellent time for study of the Earth in space because students have the intellectual capacity to grasp the spherical-Earth concept and the relationship between the Earth and Sun. This major set of concepts is a stepping-stone to a later understanding of all concepts in astronomy and space science and an essential element to further understanding of how the Earth and other planets formed.
4-5.ES1A. Students know that earth is approximately spherical in shape. Things on or near the Earth are pulled toward Earth's center by the force of gravity.
4-5.ES1A.1. Students are expected to give evidence to support the idea that Earth is spherical in shape (e.g., research Earth images from space, shape of Earth's shadow on the Moon during an eclipse of the Moon).

ES2. Earth Systems, Structures, and Processes (ES2)
4-5.ES2. Formation of Earth Materials: In prior years, students learned that water plays an essential role in Earth systems, including shaping landforms and weather. In grades 4-5 students learn how Earth materials change and how they can be used for various purposes. They learn that Earth materials include solid rocks and soil, water, and gases of the atmosphere. People use many of these materials as resources to meet their needs. One of the most important Earth resources is soil, since people depend on fertile soil to grow food. The processes that produce soils offer an excellent opportunity for students to understand how Earth materials change gradually over time, and provide a solid grounding for later study of landforms and large-scale changes of Earth's surface that students will learn in middle school.
4-5.ES2A. Students know that earth materials include solid rocks and soil, water, and gases of the atmosphere. Materials have different physical and chemical properties which make them useful in different ways. Earth materials provide many of the resources that humans use.

ES3. Earth History (ES3)
4-5.ES3. Focus on Fossils: In prior years, students learned that fossils represent the remains of plants and animals that lived long ago. In grades 4-5 students learn that fossils also provide evidence of environmental conditions that existed when the fossils formed. Most fossils are imprints formed when plants or animals died in a watery environment and were covered with mud that eventually hardened into rock. Fossils can also form in other ways, as when dissolved minerals seep into a piece of wood and harden into rock, or an animal is frozen in ice that never thaws. Fossils provide evidence of the kinds of plants and animals that lived on Earth in the past, as well as environmental conditions that prevailed at the time the fossils formed.
4-5.ES3A. Students know that different kinds of events caused the formation of different kinds of fossils.
4-5.ES3A.1. Students are expected to describe an event that could cause the formation of a given fossil (e.g., the plant or animal may have been buried in sediment that hardened into rock and left an imprint, or dissolved minerals may have seeped into a piece of wood and hardened into rock).

4-5.LS2. Food Webs: In prior grades students learned that ecosystems include both plant and animal populations as well as nonliving resources, and that plants and animals depend on one another and on the nonliving resources in their ecosystem to survive. In grades 4-5 students learn how ecosystems change and how these changes affect the capacity of an ecosystem to support populations. Some changes in ecosystems are caused by the organisms themselves. The ability of any organism to survive will depend on its characteristics and behaviors. Humans also play an important role in many ecosystems and may reduce negative impacts through thoughtful use of natural resources. Concepts related to ecosystems, including food webs, make it possible for students to understand the interrelationships among various forms of life and between living things and their environment.
4-5.LS2A. Students know that an ecosystem includes all of the populations of living organisms and nonliving physical factors in a given area. Living organisms depend on one another and the nonliving physical factors in their ecosystem to help them survive.

LS3. Biological Evolution (LS3)
4-5.LS3. Heredity and Adaptation: In prior grades students learned about variations in inherited characteristics. In grades 4-5 students learn that some differences in inherited characteristics may help plants and animals survive and reproduce. Sexual reproduction results in offspring that are never identical to either of their parents and therefore contributes to a species' ability to adapt to changing conditions. Heredity is a key feature of living plants and animals that enables changes in characteristics to be passed on and for species to change over time. Fossils provide evidence of what ancient extinct plants and animals looked like.
4-5.LS3A. Students know that in any ecosystem, some populations of organisms thrive and grow, some decline, and others do not survive at all.
4-5.LS3A.1. Students are expected to list some reasons why some populations may not survive as well as others.

PS1. Force and Motion (PS1)
4-5.PS1. Measurement of Force and Motion: In prior grades students learned that forces work not only to push and pull objects, but also to affect objects when they are dropped or thrown. In grades 4-5 students learn how to use basic tools to measure the fundamental quantities of force, time, and distance. Force can be measured with a spring scale. Distance and time can be measured by a variety of methods, and the results can be used to compare the motion of two objects. Focusing on accuracy of measurement, recording of data and logical conclusions from the data provide the foundation for future years when students will undertake more complex investigations.
4-5.PS1A. Students know that the weight of an object is a measure of how strongly it is pulled down toward the ground by gravity. A spring scale can measure the pulling force.
4-5.PS1A.1. Students are expected to use a spring scale to measure the weights of several objects accurately. Explain that the weight of an object is a measure of the force of gravity on the object. Record the measurements in a table.

4-5.PS1B. Students know that the relative speed of two objects can be determined in two ways: (1) If two objects travel for the same amount of time, the object that has traveled the greatest distance is the fastest. (2) If two objects travel the same distance, the object that takes the least time to travel the distance is the fastest.
4-5.PS1B.1. Students are expected to measure the distance that an object travels in a given interval of time and compare it with the distance that another object moved in the same interval of time to determine which is fastest.

PS2. Matter: Properties and Change (PS2)
4-5.PS2. States of Matter: In prior grades students learned to identify different physical properties of matter and to realize that an object may be made from several different types of materials. In grades 4-5 students learn that a given substance may exist in different states-solid, liquid, and gas-and that many substances can be changed from one state to another. This understanding of matter lays the foundation for later explanations of matter in terms of atomic theory.
4-5.PS2A. Students know that substances can exist in different physical states-solid, liquid, and gas. Many substances can be changed from one state to another by heating or cooling.
4-5.PS2A.1. Students are expected to explain that water is still the same substance when it is frozen as ice or evaporated and becomes a gas.

PS3. Energy: Transfer, Transformation and Conservation (PS3)
4-5.PS3. Heat, Light, Sound, and Electricity: In prior grades students learned to identify several different forms of energy. In grades 4-5 students build on their intuitive understanding of energy and learn how heat, light, sound, and electrical energy are generated and can be transferred from place to place. For example, they can observe that energy of motion can be transferred from one object to another. They can observe how heat energy is generated and moves from a warmer to a cooler place, and how sound can be produced by vibrations in the throat or guitar strings or other forms of vibration. They can also see that electrical energy can do many things, including producing light, heat, and sound, and can make things move. This introduction to the many forms of energy helps to prepare students for later studies of energy transformation and conservation.
4-5.PS3A. Students know that energy has many forms, such as heat, light, sound, motion, and electricity.
4-5.PS3A.1. Students are expected to identify different forms of energy (e.g., heat, light, sound, motion, electricity) in a system.
