Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) support for 4th grade learners:
Performance Expectations Arrangement(s):
4-PS3-1: Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.
4-PS3-2: Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
4-PS3-3: Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.
4-PS3-4: Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.
