Week 6 9/25

Book orders are due by Wednesday October 4th. Please use the code P72XY for our classroom. This helps gain books for the class library and other learning resources. 

October 14th will be the Fall Festival and 5K. Be on the look out for more information regarding that soon.

Open House is THIS Wednesday at 5:30pm. Can’t wait to see you then!

Week #6
Unit of InstructionDivision...Area&Perimeter/Weathering&Erosion/Branches of Government
Standard(s) Taught

Math:
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models. MAFS.4.NBT.2.6
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor. MAFS.4.MD.1.3

Science:
Describe the basic differences between physical weathering (breaking down of rock by wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants) and erosion (movement of rock by gravity, wind, water, and ice). SC.4.E.6.4

Social Studies:
Identify the three branches (Legislative, Judicial, Executive) of government in Florida and the powers of each. SS.4.C.3.1

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:
• use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or array models to solve and explain division problems that involve the division of a multi-digit dividend (with up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor. E.g., Rectangular Array (Concrete) Rectangular Array (Representational) Area Model
• solve division of a multi-digit dividend (with up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division, and record the calculation using equations
• apply the perimeter formula (P = 2l + 2w) in real world and mathematical situations.
• apply the area formula (A = l × w) in real world and mathematical situations.
• solve for missing dimensions of rectangles when provided with the perimeter and/or area.
• solve problems involving area of a composite figure composed of rectangles.

Science:
• observe and record evidence of physical weathering in nature (e.g., plant roots growing up through a sidewalk, cement cracking from weather changes).
• describe causes of physical weathering occurs (wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants).
• investigate the processes of physical weathering (breaking down a rock) using a model.
• observe and record evidence of erosion in a science notebook.
• describe causes of erosion (gravity, wind, water, and ice).
• investigate the processes of erosion (movement of rock) using a model.
• discuss the cause/effect relationships for erosion and weathering.
• provide examples of how physical weathering and the erosion processes change Earth’s surface (constructive and destructive). 

Social Studies:
• identify the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of Florida’s government.
• compare powers of Florida’s three branches of government.
• provide examples of actions taken by each of Florida’s three branches of government.
