4th Grade (SCI) Science Standards [ESS3] Earth and Human Activity
SCI-04.ESS3.01 Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are
derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.
Clarification Statement: Examples of renewable energy resources could include wind energy, water behind dams, and sunlight;
