MATH

MAFS.4.OA.1.1

Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 x 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.

MAFS.4.NBT.1.1, Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.

MAFS.4.MD.1.1

Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; L, mL; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), …

SCIENCE

SC.4.P.9.1

Identify some familiar changes in materials that result in other materials with different characteristics, such as decaying animal or plant matter, burning, rusting, and cooking.

Social Studies

SS.4.A.3.1

Identify explorers who came to Florida and the motivations for their expeditions

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

Students will be able to: 

Interpret a basic multiplication equation as a comparison (e.g., if a = n × b, then a is n times as much as b).

Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparison as multiplication equations.

NOTE: Statements for comparative language: times as tall as, times as long as, times as heavy as, times as much as, etc. (rather than times taller, times longer, times heavier, etc.).

Explain that a digit in one place is worth ten times the value of the place to its right by connecting to measurement conversions within the metric system.

Explain that a digit in one place is worth ten times the value of the place to its right by connecting to measurement conversions within the metric system.

 SCIENCE

Students will be able to:

Review the physical changes of water. Include reasoning why water changes state.

Identify familiar physical changes in matter in which the objects’ properties are retained (e.g., cutting, tearing, crumpling, folding, melting, freezing, dissolving).

Identify familiar chemical changes in matter that result in a new substance with new properties (e.g., burning, frying, rusting, grilling, toasting, decaying plant and animal matter).

Record observations of physical and chemical changes in a science notebook.

Make inferences about observations made of physical and chemical changes

Describe observable signs that a chemical change may exhibit (smell, color, heat, fizzing sound, and substance given off).
