Graphic Organizer/Worksheet


Students analyze experiments to determine if they were done correctly and/or if the results are reliable. They are also challenged to write their own experiments using their knowledge of the scientific method.

SCI.4.2.A.1: Science

Compare the life cycles of different plants including germination, maturity, reproduction and death.

SCI.4.2.A.5: Science

Describe how organisms interact with one another in various ways (e.g., many plants depend on animals for carrying pollen or dispersing seeds).

SCI.4.2.B.2: Science

Relate plant structures to their specific functions (e.g., growth, survival and reproduction).

SCI.4.2.B.3: Science

Classify common plants according to their characteristics (e.g., tree leaves, flowers, seeds, roots, stems).

SCI.4.2.C.4: Science

Observe and explore that fossils provide evidence about plants that lived long ago and the nature of the environment at that time.

SCI.4.3.A.1: Science

Identify characteristics of a simple physical change (e.g., heating or cooling can change water from one state to another and the change is reversible).

SCI.4.3.A.2: Science

Identify characteristics of a simple chemical change. When a new material is made by combining two or more materials, it has chemical properties that are different from the original materials (e.g., burning paper, vinegar and baking soda).

SCI.4.3.B.3: Science

Describe objects by the properties of the materials from which they are made and that these properties can be used to separate or sort a group of objects (e.g., paper, glass, plastic, metal).

SCI.4.3.B.4: Science

Explain that matter has different states (e.g., solid, liquid and gas) and that each state has distinct physical properties.

SCI.4.3.D.5: Science

Compare ways the temperature of an object can be changed (e.g., rubbing, heating, bending of metal).

SCI.4.5.B.2: Science

Analyze a series of events and/or simple daily or seasonal cycles, describe the patterns and infer the next likely occurrence.

SCI.4.5.C.3: Science

Develop, design and conduct safe, simple investigations or experiments to answer questions.

SCI.4.5.C.4: Science

Explain the importance of keeping conditions the same in an experiment.

SCI.4.5.C.5: Science

Describe how comparisons may not be fair when some conditions are not kept the same between experiments.

SCI.4.5.C.6: Science

Formulate instructions and communicate data in a manner that allows others to understand and repeat an investigation or experiment.
