# Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer

### Students who demonstrate understanding can:

#### Performance Expectations

1. Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.

Clarification Statement and Assessment Boundary

A Peformance Expectation (PE) is what a student should be able to do to show mastery of a concept. Some PEs include a Clarification Statement and/or an Assessment Boundary. These can be found by clicking the PE for "More Info." By hovering over a PE, its corresponding pieces from the Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts will be highlighted.

### Science and Engineering Practices

By clicking on a specific Science and Engineering Practice, Disciplinary Core Idea, or Crosscutting Concept, you can find out more information on it. By hovering over one you can find its corresponding elements in the PEs.

## Planning Curriculum

### Common Core State Standards Connections

#### ELA/Literacy

• SL.4.5 - Add audio recordings and visual displays to presentations when appropriate to enhance the development of main ideas or themes. (4-PS4-2)

#### Mathematics

• 4.G.A.1 - Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures. (4-PS4-2)
• MP.4 - Model with mathematics. (4-PS4-2)

## Resources & Lesson Plans

• More resources added each week!
A team of teacher curators is working to find, review, and vet online resources that support the standards. Check back often, as NSTA continues to add more targeted resources.
• Do you have a great resource to share with the community? Click here.
• From TeachEngineering - In this activity, students construct their own pinhole camera to observe the behavior of light.

• From TeachEngineering - Student groups rotate through four stations to examine light energy behavior: refraction, magnification, prisms and polarization. They see how a beam of light is refracted (bent) through various transparent mediums. While lear...

• Developing and Using Models

• Scientists and Engineers are Imaginative

• Scientists and Engineers are Patient

• Scientists and Engineers are Visionary

• Grade: 4th. Duration: Each video/activity is a different length. Type: Website with a lesson plan & collection of videos and activities for 3 different main topics of 4th grade life science. What I love about this resource is that it puts topics abo...

Planning Curriculum gives connections to other areas of study for easier curriculum creation.
