Week 29 3-26

*We are currently taking gift card basket donations for the Golfing for the Arts event. Any gift cards in any amount $5 or higher. Attach a receipt so that every $10 spent can count toward your volunteer hours. All proceeds go toward our end of the year celebration

*Be on the lookout from a note home from me mid-week with a list of IXL strands that can help your student practice skills that aren’t yet mastered to help better prepare them for the FSA.

Week #29
Unit of InstructionAngles/Plant Life Cycle&Reproduction/Adams-Onis Treaty
Standard(s) Taught

Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement. a. An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1 360 of a circle is called a “one-degree angle,” and can be used to measure angles. b. An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees. MAFS.4.MD.3.5
Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure. MAFS.4.MD.3.6

Identify processes of sexual reproduction in flowering plants, including pollination, fertilization (seed production), seed dispersal, and germination. SC.4.L.16.1

SS.4.A.3.9 Explain how Florida (Adams-Onis Treaty) became a U.S. territory. 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• recognize an angle as a geometric shape that is formed when two rays share a common endpoint.
• explain the relationship between a circle and the number of degrees in an angle (i.e., an angle is measured in reference to a circle—its center is the endpoint for each of the rays that make up the angle).
• explain an angle as a series of “one-degree turns” and the total number of “one-degree turns” is the measure of the angle in degrees (). E.g., A water sprinkler rotates one-degree at each interval. If the sprinkler rotates a total of 100 one-degree turns, what is the measure of the sprinkler’s rotation in degrees?
• explain that since it takes 360 “one-degree turns” to rotate through a circle, 1/360 of a circle is a “one-degree angle”
• measure an angle to the nearest whole number degrees using a protractor.
• use a protractor to sketch an angle given a specific measurement.

identify the reproductive structures of a flower and their functions.
o stamen/anther (male parts) – makes pollen
o pistil/carpel (female parts) – produces ovules
o ovule – becomes a seed
o ovary – becomes a fruit
• identify and describe processes of reproduction (sexual) in flowering plants.
o pollination – the transfer of pollen from the male parts (stamens) to the female parts (pistils) of a flower
o fertilization (seed production) – the joining of an egg cell and a sperm cell
o seed dispersal – the transport of seed from one location to another
o germination – the sprouting of a plant from a seed

Social Studies:
• chronicle Florida’s shift from being a Spanish territory to a U.S. territory. • explain the role of the Adams-Onis Treaty in Florida history. • identify the principle people involved in the Adams-Onis Treaty, including John Quincy Adams and Luis de Onis.
