Unit of InstructionFractions as Decimals/Reviewing the three types of Rocks/Fort Mose
Standard(s) Taught

Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100 and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100 , and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100 . MAFS.4.NF.3.5

Identify the three categories of rocks: igneous, (formed from molten rock); sedimentary (pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms); and metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure). SC.4.E.6.1

Identify the significance of Fort Mose as the first free African community in the United States. SS.4.A.3.5 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• represent fractions with a denominator of 10 and fractions with a denominator of 100 using models (e.g., grids, base ten blocks, and number lines).
• express a fraction with a denominator of 10 as an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100.
• add two fractions with denominators 10 and/or 100 by finding equivalent fractions with like denominators.

• describe how each category of rock is formed within the rock cycle.
     o igneous – formed from molten rock
     o sedimentary – formed with other pieces of rock and fossilized organisms
     o metamorphic – formed from heat and pressure
• differentiate between the three different categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their physical properties.

• describe Fort Mose’s role as the country’s first legally sanctioned free African settlement.
• chronicle Fort Mose’s ensuing years as a sanctuary for African People seeking freedom from English slavery.
• summarize Fort Mose’s significance as a precursor site to the Underground Railroad. Examples may include, but are not limited to, the differences between Spanish and English treatment of enslavement.
