Unit of InstructionMutli-Step Word Problems/Heat Transfer & Flow/Explorers Come to Florida
Standard(s) Taught

Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding. MAFS.4.OA.1.3

Recognize that heat flows from a hot object to a cold object and that heat flow may cause materials to change temperature. SC.4.P.11.1

Social Studies:
Identify explorers who came to Florida and the motivations for their expeditions. SS.4.A.3.1 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• solve multi-step word problems (i.e., up to 3 steps) that involve the four operations using strategies for this grade level (e.g, rectangular arrays, area models, properties of operations, etc).
• represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
• interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
• assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.
NOTE: The expectations for multi-step word problems include addition and subtraction within 1,000, multiplication of 2‐digit by 1‐ digit or a multiple of 10 by a 1‐digit, and division of 2‐digit by 1‐digit

• investigate and diagram the direction of heat flow (hot to cold).
• record observations of heat transfer (in the form of temperature changes) within tables, charts, and graphs. 
• analyze and form conclusions based on their recorded observations and data.
• learn about how heat transfers (conduction, convection, radiation)

Social Studies:
• identify explorers who landed in Florida
• explain why explorers came to Florida and the outcome of their expeditions. Examples may include, but not be limited to, Ponce de Leon, Juan Garrido, Esteban Dorantes, Tristan de Luna
