Week 20 1-16

St. Augustine money is due by Friday Feb 2nd, please be sure to bring in money by then.

Letters of Intent are being sent home Tuesday 1/16. If you plan on having your child(ren) return next year, these MUST be filled out and returned by February 2nd. This will guarantee that your child will still be here next year.

Week #20
Unit of InstructionWord Problems using Distance or an unknown/Conductors&Insulators/Narvaez and Menendez
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

Identify common materials that conduct heat well or poorly. SC.4.P.11.2

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

• review how things that give off light often give off heat.
• review how heat is produced when two objects rub against each other.
• investigate heat energy by measuring temperature changes in a liquid.
• compare observations with classmates explaining any differences that occur.
• collect and record temperature readings during investigations in charts, tables, and graphs.
• investigate which materials are the best conductors of heat (e.g., clay, metal, and glass).
• investigate which materials are non-conductors/insulators of heat (e.g., plastic, wood, styrofoam).
• make inferences about observations made during conductivity investigations.
• form conclusions about which materials conduct heat well or poorly based on investigations.

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
