Standard(s) Taught

Generate a number pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way. MAFS.4.OA.3.5
Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using multiplication and division, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding. MAFS.4.OA.1.3

Relate that the rotation of Earth (day and night) and apparent movements of the sun, moon, and stars are connected.SC.4.E.5.4 
Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month. SC.4.E.5.2

Identify physical features of Florida. SS.4.G.1.1
Locate and label cultural features on a Florida map. SS.4.G.1.2


Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• generate a number pattern that follows a given one- or two-step rule. E.g., Rule: Multiply by 2 and then subtract 4. The first number in the pattern is 6. Show the next three numbers in the pattern. Answer: 8,12, 20
• identify features in a number pattern after following a given one- or two-step rule.
solve multi-step word problems that involve multiplication and/or division using strategies for this grade level (e.g, rectangular arrays, area models, properties of operations, etc).
• represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
• interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
• assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.

• describe the changes (patterns) that occur to the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month that have been recorded in a science notebook.
• compare observable shapes of the moon.
• explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the moon to appear as though it is moving across the sky in the day or night sky. 

 • identify and locate Florida’s major physical features, including major bodies of water and areas with major islands on a state map such as Florida Keys
• locate, label, and discuss Florida’s cultural features on a Florida map (e.g., state capital-Tallahassee, major cities, sites of important historical events, major tourist attractions).
