Physical science
Earth science
Life science
Engineering

By the end of fourth grade, students understand that electricity and magnetism are related effects that have many useful applications in everyday life; all organisms need energy and matter to live and grow; living organisms depend on one another and on their environment for survival; the properties of rocks and minerals reflect the processes that formed them; and waves, wind, water, and ice shape and reshape Earth’s surface. Students follow written instructions for a scientific investigation. They collect data using measurement and estimation and use graphs to interpret the data. They form and test predictions (in multiple trials) and draw conclusions about their evidence.
