Science:
Recognize ways plants and animals, including humans, can impact the environment. SC.4.L.17.4
Trace the flow of energy from the Sun as it is transferred along the food chain through the producers to the consumers. SC.4.L.17.3

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:
• use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place between 1,000 and 1,000,000.

Science:
• describe the positive (helpful) and negative (harmful) impact plants may have on the environment.
    o positive – decor, medicine, oxygen, erosion control, food source
    o negative – invasive species, poisonous plants, reduction in diversity
• describe the positive (helpful) and negative (harmful) impact animals may have on the environment.
    o positive – migration, predator-prey, pets, food source
    o negative – overpopulation, poisonous/dangerous animals, destruction)
• describe ways that humans help and harm the environment.
• review that all living things need energy to survive.
• explain that plants make their own food (photosynthesis) and are called producers.
• explain that animals, including humans, cannot make their own food and are called consumers.
• explain that when animals eat plants or other animals, the energy stored in the food source is passed to them
• describe that all life on Earth is dependent upon the sun.
• trace the flow of energy from the sun as it is transferred along the food chain through the producers to the consumers (e.g., sun  grass  rabbit  fox).
• explain that some energy is lost from one organism to the next in the form of heat.
• classify consumers as herbivores, carnivores, or omnivores.
• describe the relationship between plants as producers and animals as consumers.

Social Studies:
• Immigration in Florida economic factors leading to the Great Depression.
• describe the impact of the Great Depression on daily life in Florida.
• summarize the economic factors and historic events that contributed to the end of the Great Depression. Examples may include, but are not limited to, the Labor Day hurricane of 1935, Mediterranean fruit fly.
