# Week 16 12-4

**Please remember, there is NO early release for the rest of the year.

Teacher Melanie Berube Math/Science/SS 4th 16 Conversion Word Problems/
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:
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

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:
• 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.

SS:
• 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

Math:

Majority of the model due Thursday.

Assignments Due

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

Science:
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)

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