Standard(s) Taught

Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2 , 1/4 , 1/8 ). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection. MAFS.4.MD.2.4

Measure and compare objects based on their physical properties:mass, volume, shape, odor, attraction to magnets, taste, color, texture.
Identify properties and common uses of water in each of its states (gas–vapor, liquid–water, solid–ice) and how the particles move in each (fast, gliding, packed and vibrating respectively)
Law of Conservation of Mass-The mass of an object is always the same as the sum of its parts
Magnets can attract magnetic materials (iron, nickel, cobalt), and repel other magnets (N-S attract, N-N and S-S repel)
Identify changes in materials and determine if it is physical (cutting, changing states, folding, crumpling) or chemical (rusting, new color, smoke given off, COOKING, decaying)
Identify forms of energy (light, heat, electric, chemical, mechanical, sound)
Energy has the ability to cause motion or create change
Sound is produced by vibrating object and pitch is determined by how fast (high) or slow (low) the vibrations are
Moving water and air are sources of motion and can be used to move things
Heat flows FROM a hot object TO a cold object which may cause a change in temperature (conduction, convection, radiation)
Identify objects that Conduct (allows heat to pass through) and insulate (does not allow heat to pass through easily)
Recognize an object in motion always changes its position and may change its direction
Investigate and describe that speed is determined by the distance an object moves over a certain period of time and that objects can move at different speeds

SS.4.A.3.1 Identify explorers who came to Florida and the motivations for their expeditions.
SS.4.A.3.3 Identify the significance of St. Augustine as the oldest permanent European settlement in the United States.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• create a line plot to display measurement data including fraction units of halves, quarters, and eighths. E.g., Thomas’ father cuts a wooden rod into 8 smaller pieces. He records the measurements of each piece on a line plot.
• use the measurement data on a line plot to solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators. E.g., A small group of students in Mr. Tordini’s class measure the antennae of different insects to the nearest eighth of an inch. They display the measurements on the line plot shown below. Answer the following questions based on the line plot.
[o What is the difference between the longest and shortest antennae of all the insects that were measured? (Answer:12 8 − 1 8 = 11 8 inches) o If the antennae with the longest length were laid end to end, what would their total length be? (Answer: 12 8 + 12 8 = 24 8 inches)]

See above standards

• 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
• summarize St. Augustine’s significance in Florida history and United States history
