Fourth grade students use the information they have collected to make informed decisions. They have many opportunities to use tools such as calculators, microscopes, triple beam balances and compasses to observe and measure. Students will enjoy examining the properties of soils, recording changes in weather, and learning about food webs.
Fourth grade students use investigations to learn about the natural world. While studying physical science, students learn about matter, and how to compare, contrast and measure changes in physical materials. They also explore force and motion, and investigate different forms of energy.
