Unit of InstructionDecimals as fractions&fractions as decimals/Nutrition Introduction/Citizenship--How kids can contribute to the community
Standard(s) Taught

Math:
Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100 ; describe length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram. MAFS.4.NF.3.6

Science:
Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual observations from ideas and inferences about the observations. SC.4.N.1.6

Social Studies:
SS.4.C.2.2 Identify ways citizens work together to influence government and help solve community and state problems.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:
• demonstrate place value of decimals through the hundredths using concrete materials (e.g., decimal grids, base ten blocks, number lines).
• translate a fraction with a denominator of 10 or 100 into its equivalent decimal form.
• translate a decimal to the tenths or hundredths place into its equivalent fraction form.
• represent a decimal value on a number line.

Science:
• record observations of an object and/or an event in a science notebook using a variety of data collection tools (e.g., diagrams, charts, graphs).
• make inferences based on observations.
• distinguish observations from inferences. 

Social Studies:
• summarize ways citizens can influence government and public policy.
• identify community and state problems.
• describe how citizens, including children, can help solve community and state problems. Examples may include, but are not limited to, voting, petitioning, conservation, and recycling.
