Subject AreaMath/Science/Social Studies
Grade Level4th
Week #17
Unit of InstructionWord Problems and Multiplicative Comparison/Energy/Tribes
Standard(s) Taught

Math:
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison. MAFS.4.OA.1.2
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals. Represent fractional quantities of distance and intervals of time using linear models. NOTE: This is an amended Florida Standard. MAFS.4.MD.1.2

Science:
Investigate and describe that energy has the ability to cause motion or create change. SC.4.P.10.2 
Describe how moving water and air are sources of energy and can be used to move things. SC.4.P.10.4

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

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:
• distinguish multiplicative comparison (e.g., Tonya has 3 times as many cousins as Matthew) from additive comparison (e.g., Tonya has 3 more cousins than Matthew). NOTE: In an additive comparison, the underlying question is what amount would be added to one quantity in order to result in the other. In a multiplicative comparison, the underlying question is what factor would multiply one quantity in order to result in the other.
• solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison (situations may include 2-digit by 1-digit expressions or a multiple of 10 by a 1-digit expression). E.g., A red hat costs $18 and a blue hat costs $6. How many times as much as the blue hat does the red hat cost? The red hat costs 3 times as much as the blue hat.
• use multiplication and division to solve multiplicative comparison word problems involving distances (i.e., inch, feet, yard, mile; millimeter, centimeter, meter, kilometer), including problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit, involving whole numbers only.
• use multiplication and division to solve multiplicative comparison word problems involving intervals of time including whole numbers only and represent the intervals of time using linear models.
• use multiplication and division to solve multiplicative comparison word problems involving money including whole numbers only

Science:
• investigate and describe how energy can cause motion (e.g., moving water can turn a water wheel to make hydropower, wind can move sand across the beach or sail a model boat, solar energy can power a model car).
• investigate and describe how energy can create change in matter (e.g., heat energy can melt ice, moving water can make rocks smooth, light can keep food warm).
• explain the relationship between energy and motion.

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.
