Week 30 4-2

Thank you for those who have brought in gift cards so far. We are still looking for donations of gift cards in any amount for our raffle basket. Remember to attach a receipt for credit towards volunteer hours.

Week #30
Unit of InstructionClassifying Shapes&Symmetry&Adding Decimals/Factors That Affect Germination/Seminole Wars
Standard(s) Taught

Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles. MAFS.4.G.1.2
Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry. MAFS.4.G.1.3
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals.  MAFS.4.MD.1.2

Compare and contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants and animals, such as those that undergo incomplete and complete metamorphosis, and flowering and nonflowering seed-bearing plants.SC.4.L.16.4
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.3.10 Identify the causes and effects of the Seminole Wars.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• classify two-dimensional shapes into the following categories: those with parallel lines, those with perpendicular lines, those with both parallel and perpendicular lines, those with no parallel or perpendicular lines.
• classify two-dimensional shapes into categories based on the presence or absence of acute, obtuse, or right angles.
• recognize that right triangles form a category of triangles and identify triangles that fit in this category.
• explain line symmetry and identify figures that have line symmetry (e.g., fold a figure or draw a line so it has two parts that match exactly).
• draw lines of symmetry in both regular and non-regular polygons.
• use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances (i.e., inch, feet, yard, mile; millimeter, centimeter, meter, kilometer), including simple fractions or decimals.

• diagram the major stages in the life cycles of plants. (seed  seedling  mature plant  flower or cone).
• identify and describe processes of reproduction (sexual) in flowering plants.
      o germination – the sprouting of a plant from a seed

• outline the events and conflicts leading up to the First Seminole War. • Summarize the outcomes the First, Second, and Third Seminole Wars including Andrew Jackson’s invasion of Florida, the treaties signed, the migration to Indian Territory, and the 1868 Florida Constitution. An example may include, but is not limited to, Jackson’s invasion of Florida (First Seminole War) without federal permission.
