Standard(s) Taught

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

Investigate and explain that sound is produced by vibrating objects and that pitch depends on how fast or slow the object vibrates. SC.4.P.10.3

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

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• 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).

• describe the requirements/components necessary for sound to be produced.
• Investigate the production of sound (e.g., tuning forks, hollow tubes, vocal cords, or water bottles filled with different amounts of water).
• explain that sound is produced by vibrating objects.
• investigate variations in pitch (e.g., water bottle liquids, rulers, straws, stretched rubber bands). • explain that pitch depends on the speed (fast and slow) an object vibrates and the measurements (size and length) of the object.

• 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.

Classroom Activities

Word problems involving conversions
Mathapalooza on Wednesday

Science Fusion digital lesson
Magic School Bus episode
Sound lab

Start building models.
Majority of the model due Thursday.

Assignments Due

HW due Nightly
Theme Park Packet Summative due Friday
Conversion word problem formative Thursday

None! (if anyone could bring in marshmellows, that’d be great. We need it for our STEM Olympics happening the last week of school before break. Marshmellows of all sizes are needed)

Majority of Model is due Thursday. All that should be left is minor touch-ups.
