4th Grade Science
In these quests the students will be tasked with finding secret gems that hold secret visions and images. They must find them all to reveal the secrets of Ky, the first mage. They will have to fight bandits, swamps, and the Roka Forest.
The quests are listed in order of the story. They are designed for standard mastery so each quest covers different topics under each standard. To follow the story, the quests must be completed in order.
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.*
4-PS4-1 Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and to show that waves can cause objects to move.
4-PS4-2 Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.
4-PS4-3 Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.*
4-LS1-1 Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
4-LS1-2 Use a model to describe that animals’ receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways.
4-ESS1-1 Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.
4-ESS2-1 Plan and conduct investigations on the effects of water, ice, wind, and vegetation on the relative rate of weathering and erosion.
4-ESS2-2 Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features.
4-ESS3-1 Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from renewable and non-renewable resources and how their uses affect the environment.
4-ESS3-2 Generate and compare multiple solutions to reduce the impacts of natural Earth processes on humans.*
