the classroom and outside using position words such as: in
front of, behind, between, on top of, under, above, below and
beside

K.P.2.2 – Give examples of different ways objects and organisms move
(to include falling to the ground when dropped ):
• Straight
• Zigzag
• Round and round

• Back and forth
• Fast and slow

Fourth Grade:

 

EX.4.P.2.1 – Identify different types of solid materials (wood, rock, plastic, rubber, glass, metal).
EX.4.P.2.2 – Compare physical properties of solid materials (weight, texture, hardness, flexibility, and strength).

4.P.2.1 – Compare the physical properties of samples of matter
(strength, hardness, flexibility, ability to conduct heat, ability
to conduct electricity, ability to be attracted by magnets,
reactions to water and fire).
