Quarter 1, Week 3: Aug. 27-31

TeacherBrooke Brackney
Subject AreaMath and Science
Grade Level4
Week #3
Unit of InstructionDeveloping an understanding of multiples and their factors. Earth, Sun, and the Moon.
Standard(s) Taught



Investigate factors and multiples. 

a. Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1–100. 

b. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1–100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. 

c. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1–100 is prime or composite




Explain that models can be three-dimensional, two-dimensional, an explanation in your mind, or a computer model.


Recognize that Earth revolves around the Sun in a year and rotates on its axis in a 24-hour day.


Investigate how technology and tools help to extend the ability of humans to observe very small things and very large things.


Relate that the rotation of Earth (day and night) and apparent movements of the sun, moon, and stars are connected.


Observe that the patterns of stars in the sky stay the same although they appear to shift across the sky nightly, and different stars can be seen in different season.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


Students will be able to:

                Determine factor pairs of whole numbers in the range 1-100

                Determine multiples of a given one-digit number

                Determine whether a given number in the range of 1-100 is prime or composite



Students will be able to:

Tell about and differentiate different kinds of models (three-dimensional, two-dimensional, a      mental picture, or a computer model)

Demonstrate the difference between Earth’s rotation and Earth’s revolution

Explain how Earth rotates on an axis and it takes 24 hours (day and night)

Explain that Earth revolves (orbits) around the sun once a year (approximately 365 days)

Tell that the sun is the closest star to Earth

Discuss how different star patterns (constellations) appear to shift across the sky, but really the Earth is just rotating.

Explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis are what cause the sun and stars to appear as though        they are moving in the sky
