We cover many topics in 4th grade science. These topics include Plants, Properties of Matter, Weather and Climate, Earth's Land Resources, Electricity and Magnetism.
To learn more about each topic we do research, projects, and perform experiments. We're learning new vocabulary that goes along with each area of study. We are also learning about the scientific method; we make a hypothesis and then we develop an activity to test our hypothesis.
In May all 4th graders take a New York State Science Assessment. This assessment test student's general science knowledge and their ability to perform a variety of experiments.
We are using desktop computers in the computer laboratory and laptop computers in the classroom to learn social studies, science, math, reading, and writing. Our learning is limitless at school and at home with the use of the Internet, CD-ROMs, and software programs.
As required by the State Education Department, fourth graders will be assessed in the spring (ELA and Math), and May/June (science).
