Math:
Understand a fraction with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1 . a. Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole. b. Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8 ; 2 1/8 = 1 +1 + 1/8 ; 2 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8 . MAFS.4.NF.2.3
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:
Identify the three categories of rocks: igneous, (formed from molten rock); sedimentary (pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms); and metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure).SC.4.E.6.1
Social Studies:
Identify the three branches (Legislative, Judicial, Executive) of government in Florida and the powers of each. SS.4.C.3.1

Standard(s) Taught 


Learning Targets and Learning Criteria 

Math: • 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. • demonstrate with concrete and visual models (i.e., number lines, rectangles, squares, and circles) that adding fractions referring to the same sized whole is joining parts of the whole. • demonstrate with concrete and visual models that subtracting fractions referring to the same sized whole is separating parts of the whole. *NOTE: Grade 4 expectations in this domain are limited to fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100. • decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way using visual models. • record the decomposition of a fraction by an equation and justify the decomposition.
Science: • use technology and tools to study and investigate samples of rocks. • observe and identify examples for each of the three categories of rocks (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic). • construct models for each of the three categories of rocks to include major details. • explain, pictorially and in words, the steps of the rock cycle. • describe how each category of rock is formed within the rock cycle. o igneous – formed from molten rock o sedimentary – formed with other pieces of rock and fossilized organisms o metamorphic – formed from heat and pressure • differentiate between the three different categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their physical properties.
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.
