Week 13 11-13

**Canned food drive is happening this week. I have a sheet that I keep track of in terms of donations per student each day. Please consider giving in this holiday time to those who are in need. Students must donate at least 5 items in order to be able to participate in Disney Dress Down Day next Tuesday 11/21. Winning class gets a donut party.

**Book orders are due by Tuesday 11/21. Parents, if you would like part of your order to be a gift for your child, just let me know and I can get it to you during parent pick up or some other time. What a great gift to give books to a child!

Week #13
Unit of InstructionMeasurement Conversions/Changes in Matter (Physical and Chemical)/Calusa
Standard(s) Taught

Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division. MAFS.4.NBT.1.1
Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; L, mL; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), … MAFS.4.MD.1.1

Identify some familiar changes in materials that result in other materials with different characteristics, such as decaying animal or plant matter, burning, rusting, and cooking. SC.4.P.9.1

Social Studies:
Compare Native American tribes in Florida. SS.4.A.2.1 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• explain that a digit in one place is worth ten times the value of the place to its right by connecting to measurement conversions within the metric system.
• know relative size of measurement units within one system.
• convert larger units of measure into smaller equivalent units (required units are listed on Grade 4 FSA Mathematics Reference Sheet).
• complete a two-column table (function table) showing measurement equivalents and relate measurement conversions to multiplicative comparisons (e.g., 1 yard is 3 times as long as 1 foot).

• identify familiar physical changes in matter in which the objects’ properties are retained (e.g., cutting, tearing, crumpling, folding, melting, freezing, dissolving).
• identify familiar chemical changes in matter that result in a new substance with new properties (e.g., burning, frying, rusting, grilling, toasting, decaying plant and animal matter).
• record observations of physical and chemical changes in a science notebook.
• make inferences about observations made of physical and chemical changes.
• describe observable signs that a chemical change may exhibit (smell, color, heat, fizzing sound, and substance given off).

Social Studies:
• identify Florida’s different Native American tribes. Examples may include, but are not limited to, Apalachee, Calusa, Tequesta, Timucua, and Tocobaga. 
• summarize the lifestyles of different Florida tribes.
