Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:
• apply an understanding of addition and subtraction, place value, and flexibility with multiple strategies to use the standard algorithms for addition and subtraction of whole numbers with solutions greater than 1,000 and within 1,000,000.
• solve multi-digit multiplication problems that extend to 4-digit by 1-digit or up to 2-digit by 2-digit using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations, and record the calculation using equations.
• solve division of a multi-digit dividend (with up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division, and record the calculation using equations
• convert larger units of measure into smaller equivalent units (required units are listed on Grade 4 FSA Mathematics Reference Sheet).
• decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way using visual models.
• record the decomposition of a fraction by an equation and justify the decomposition.

Science:
• observe and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, and the energy of motion (mechanical).
• identify examples of these energy forms in their life and in the natural world.
• compare and contrast these types of energy.
• review how light travels in a straight path until interrupted by an object.
• review how light passes through other objects (transparent, translucent, opaque).
• review how light reflects, bends, and absorbs.

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

Classroom Activities
