Nature Circles® NGSS Cards: Grade 4
This set of Nature Circles® is comprised of four activities that help fourth grade teachers communicate specific Next Generation Science Standards. With the schoolyard as the setting, students explore the movement of energy in its various forms, as well as weathering, erosion, and topographic patterns. They look for the natural resources living things rely on to survive and view them as either renewable or nonrenewable. Throughout all the sciences, students continue to look for patterns and cause and effect, and begin to better understand systems and system models, and energy and matter—crosscutting concepts that tie science facts together. The Nature Circles NGSS Activity Cards® measure three inches in diameter and are held together by a clip that allows for reorganization if desired and easy attachment to a clipboard, belt loop, or backpack. Printable 8-1/2 x 11 inch blackline masters are available - please see details section below. All Nature Circles NGSS Activity Cards® cards are printed locally on recycled paper.
