Emphasize using the structures of fossils to make inferences about ancient organisms.
...比...更.... (很, 更, 最)
Observe structures of fossils and ocompare to modern organisms, noticing patterns of stability and change.
Observe structures of fossils and make inferences about ancient organisms and environments.
|9-Nov (1/2 day F)|
Explore patterns in rock layers, landforms, and fossils to infer how earth has changed over time (older layers on the bottom).
当___ 的时候, _______.
Engage in an argument based on evidence from rock layers and fossils to show that environments have changed over time.
|23-Nov (W, Th, F off)|
Explore the cause and effect relationship between the speed of an object and the energy of that object.
Construct an explanation of the relationship between speed and energy using words like fast, slow, strong, or weak.
|14-Dec (1/2 F)|
Ask questions and make observations about the changes in energy and motion that occur when objects collide.
Ask questions about how energy is transferred (not created or destroyed) when objects collide.

Chinese New Year
Observe regular wave patterns (waves move, water doesn't food coloring). Describe wave patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength.
22-Feb (Lantern Festival F)
Explore wave interference. Develop and use a model describing the regular pattern of waves.
|1-Mar (1/2 F)||Shopping||8.2逛商场||然后||先...然后...||4.3.2|
Explore the reflection and movement of visible light. (colors, lenses, prisms)
Model and describe how visible light waves reflected from objects enter the eye causing objects to be seen.
|15-March (M off)||Emotions||9.1手影游戏||笑、哭、害怕、变成、床、睡觉、||我再也不...||4.3.3|
Use the engineering design process to create a solution to an information transfer problem using wave patterns.
Compare the brightness of various stars, including the sun. Explore the relationship between brightness and distance.
Construct an explanation how differences in the apparent brightness of the Sun compared to other stars is due to the relative distance (scale) of stars from Earth.
Observe patterns of day and night, daily changes in length and direction of shadows, and seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky.
Analyze and interpret data of observable patterns to show that Earth rotates on its axis and revolves around the Sun (track sunrise and sunset, temp, moon phases, position of stars)
