Take This Fourth Grade Science Quiz to Know How Much You Remember!

We were inundated with a barrage of science knowledge in elementary school, which we either retained as we moved along in life or quickly forgot. Find out which of these scientific facts are still bouncing around in your mind by taking this quiz!

A renewable resource is a resource that _______.

Comes in a limited amount

Is naturally reoccurring

Can be easily made

Is never used

Is naturally reoccurring
A natural resource that can be replenished throughout the lifespan of a person is said to be renewable.

Describe a neuron.

An involuntary action that links with the hypothalamus in the brain

 A nerve fiber that protects the brain

A nerve tissue that controls voluntary actions

A nerve cell that serves as a key structural and functional component of the nervous system and that allows for the movement of nerve impulses

A nerve cell that serves as a key structural and functional component of the nervous system and that allows for the movement of nerve impulses
The fundamental cell of the nervous system is the neuron, often known as a nerve cell.

Nearer to the Earth’s surface, fossils are often ____ than fossils under them.

Younger

Tastier

Older

Whiter

Younger
The rock strata and fossils they contain are often older at the bottom of a sedimentary stack than they are higher up.

What is the cell’s “brain” made of?

Ribosome

Nucleus

DNA

Membrane

Nucleus
The cell’s nucleus functions as its central nervous system. It aids in regulating reproduction, mobility, and feeding. If it occurs inside a cell, there’s a good likelihood the nucleus is aware of it.

What is the energy that a moving item possesses?

Mechanical energy

Kinetic energy

Sound energy

Potential energy

Kinetic energy
A moving object or particle has kinetic energy, which relies on both its mass and its rate of motion

 How long does it take the Earth to complete one orbit of the sun?

365 days

31 days

200 days

1 day

365 days
We are starting off simple, but don’t worry, they will become more difficult. On Earth, a day is 24 hours (the time it takes the Earth to rotate or spin once). In 365.256 days, Earth completes one orbit of the sun, or one year on Earth.

Which biome is distinguished by permafrost, a layer of earth that is always frozen?

Mountains

Rainforest

Tundra

Desert

Tundra
Permafrost on the tundra may be deeper in the summer than in the winter, but it still inhibits the development of big, deep-rooted trees.

What portion of a plant receives nutrients and water?

Stem

Flowers

Roots

Leaves

Roots
Tiny root hairs protrude from the root and aid in absorption. The plant’s roots assist in holding it firmly in place so it won’t topple over. They also keep additional food on hand for later usage.

What do your heart and lungs do?

Delivers calcium to your bones

Digests food

Circulates blood and oxygen around your body

Controls your limbs

Circulates blood and oxygen around your body
Your circulatory system, made comprised of your heart and blood arteries, distributes blood and oxygen throughout your body.

When an animal ____ in the winter, it stops being active.

Consumption

Eating

Extinction

Hibernation

Hibernation
Some animals use hibernation as a means of surviving the bitter winter. When winter finally ends, they curl up in a secure location and remain there. Animals in hibernation appear virtually lifeless. Their body temperature is almost below freezing, and they hardly breathe at all. When the weather gets warmer, they resume their normal activities.

What does it mean when two objects brush against one another?

Friction

Conduction

Radiation

Magnetism

Friction
A solid item cannot slide or roll over another without encountering friction. Automobile engines need around 20% of their output to overcome frictional forces in moving components.

Which of these aids an animal’s defense against predators?

Food

Camouflage

Fire

Migration

Camouflage
Organisms utilize camouflage, also known as cryptic coloring, as a form of defense or strategy to conceal their appearance, often to blend in with their environment.

The ___ is where two bones come together.

Ribs

Spine

Skeleton

Joint

Joint
A joint, such as the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder, is where two or more bones meet. There are several kinds, including ball-and-socket, planar, hinge, and saddle.

What is migration?

Aging

Change from one form to another

Hibernation

Movement from one place to another

Movement from one place to another
For instance, an animal migration occurs when an animal physically moves from one place to another, like the monarch butterfly and many other bird species do each year.

What is solar energy?

Windmills

Electric cars

Rechargeable batteries

Energy from the sun

Energy from the sun
Solar energy is the sun’s radiation that may create heat, trigger chemical processes, or generate electricity.

Which benefit does consuming food give a person?

Dark Matter

Sunlight

Energy

Time

Energy
The body receives its energy from the three main nutrients: protein, carbohydrates, and fat. We require food because without it, we would wither away.

What happens when a liquid turns into a gas?

Freezing

Chilling

Vaporization

Melting

Vaporization
The process of turning a liquid into a gas is called vaporization.

What animals lay eggs?

Fish

Reptiles

Birds

All of the above

All of the above
In many animal groups, including fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and even mammals, there are species that lay eggs and species that give birth to live offspring.
