Next Generation Science
- use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.
- ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.
- make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
- develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move.
- develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.
- generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.
- construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
- use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways.
- analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features.
- plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
- use the Step Up to Writing®process to produce clear, developed, organized expository paragraphs and research reports.
- include point of view and supportive data in paragraphs
- write for different purposes, audience and topics.
- be able to plan, revise and edit the paragraphs.
- participate in the Young Authors Faire.
- be able to explain a selection and support the details by giving examples in the text.
- use comprehension strategies and skills to further explain the selection.
- recognize key elements in fiction/non-fiction stories, poems and plays.
- identify the difference between voice and point of view.
- demonstrate an understanding of the physical and human geographic features that define places and regions in California.
- describe the social, political, cultural, and economic life and interactions among people of California from the pre-Columbian societies to the Spanish mission and Mexican rancho periods.

- explain how California became an agricultural and industrial power by tracing the transformation of the California economy and its political and cultural development since the 1850’s.
