Throughout the year we will be developing a deeper science vocabulary. This attachment is a glossary of terms your children should be familiar with in preparation for the PSSA tests in the April. The majority of these terms are one your child comes across through our daily science lessons. The documents below were retrieved from the PA Department of Education website: http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/assessment_anchors/7440

Pennsylvania's 4th Grade Assessment Anchors: Grade 4 Science Assessment Anchors 2011.doc
Pennsylvania's Assessment Anchor Glossary: PA Science Assessment Glossary.doc
* Please be aware that this glossary is for all grades. Some of the vocabulary will not be reached this year, but in the future.
