National Science Education Standards

Grade 4:
  POSITION AND MOTION OF OBJECTS
 
  • The position of an object can be described by locating it relative to another object or the background.
  • An object's motion can be described by tracing and measuring its position over time.
  • The position and motion of objects can be changed by pushing or pulling. The size of the change is related to the strength of the push or pull.
  • Sound is produced by vibrating objects. The pitch of the sound can be varied by changing the rate of vibration.
Grades 5-6:
  MOTIONS AND FORCES
 
  • The motion of an object can be described by its position, direction of motion, and speed. That motion can be measured and represented on a graph.
  • An object that is not being subjected to a force will continue to move at a constant speed and in a straight line.
  • If more than one force acts on an object along a straight line, then the forces will reinforce or cancel one another, depending on their direction and magnitude. Unbalanced forces will cause changes in the speed or direction of an object's motion.
