Week #15
Unit of InstructionConverting Customary Measurements/Forms of Energy/Tribes in Florida
Standard(s) Taught

Math:
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

Science:
Observe and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, and the energy of motion.SC.4.P.10.1

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

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:
• 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).

Science:
•observe and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, and the energy of motion (mechanical).
• identify examples of these energy forms in their life and in the natural world.
• compare and contrast these types of energy.
• review how light travels in a straight path until interrupted by an object.
• review how light passes through other objects (transparent, translucent, opaque).
• review how light reflects, bends, and absorbs.

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