Unit of InstructionForms of energy/Measurement
Standard(s) Taught
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


Students will:  
• know relative size of measurement units within one system.

• 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).


Students will:

• 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.
