Grade 4: Investigating Energy Through Sound, Light, Heat, and Motion (4-PS3-4)


  • Grade: 4
  • Content Area: Energy
  • NGSS Standard: 4-PS3-4


The goal of this unit is for students to understand that energy has sources, and that energy moves through systems by being transformed from one form to another.  The students conducted experiments, collected and analyzed data, and solved engineering problems by designing Rube Goldberg devices that demonstrated energy transfers.
