|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• convert larger units of measure into smaller equivalent units (required units are listed on Grade 4 FSA Mathematics Reference Sheet).
• complete a two-column table (function table) showing measurement equivalents and relate measurement conversions to multiplicative comparisons (e.g., 1 yard is 3 times as long as 1 foot).
• review how light travels in a straight path until interrupted by an object.
• review how light passes through other objects (transparent, translucent, opaque).
• review how light reflects, bends, and absorbs
• observe and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, and the energy of motion (mechanical).
• identify examples of these energy forms in their life and in the natural world.
• compare and contrast these types of energy.

Forms of Energy Vocab
Expand- to make larger or more extensive.
Contract- to make smaller.
Heat- energy that can be measured.
Convection- heat transferring through atoms.
Conduction- the way heat moves through objects when they touch each other.
Insulator- a substance that does not easily allow the passage of heat or sound.
Conductor- a substance that transmits heat.
Radiation- how heat energy moves in waves.
Sound- vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a person’s or animal’s ear.
Translucent- allowing light, but not detailed shapes, to pass through.
Transparent- allowing light to pass through so that objects behind can be distinctly seen.
Opaque- not able to be seen through.
