The following unit consists of lesson plans and activities that meet the Utah State Science Core Objectives for

the Fourth grade.

This unit also allows for several integration opportunities in Social Studies, Language Arts, Math, Music, and Art. The Unit may cover core objectives in some of these areas as well.


Each of these lessons can be turned into a unit of its' own. There are numerous resources available. Many of the ideas and activities that we used originated from other resources although we adapted each of these in order to meet the learning needs of the students we were teaching.
