4th Grade

The fourth-grade SEEd standards provide a framework for students to construct an explanation of how structures support growth, behavior, and survival in both plants and animals. Students analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of stability and change in ancient organisms and environments. Students plan and carry out an investigation to gather evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electrical currents. Students analyze data and construct explanations for how the Sun and Earth interact. Additionally, students design solutions to problems that exist in these areas.

The Utah SEEd Standards is a research-grounded document aimed at providing accurate and appropriate guidance for educators and stakeholders. But above all else, the goal of this document is to provide students with the education they deserve, honoring their abilities, their potential, and their right to utilize scientific thought and skills for themselves and the world that they will build.
