Subject AreaMath and Science
Grade Level4th
Week #4
Unit of InstructionExploring multiples and factors/Earth, Sun and Moon: Earth's Movement/Getting to Know Florida
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:      

  • Explain that models can be three-dimensional, two-dimensional, a mental model (a picture in your mind), or a computer model.
  • use a model to demonstrate the difference between Earth’s rotation and Earth’s revolution.
  • Explain that Earth rotates once on its axis in approximately a 24-hour period (day and night). 
  • Explain that Earth revolves (orbits) around the sun once in a year (approximately 365 days).
  • Review that the sun is the closest star to Earth.
  • Demonstrate that the star patterns (constellations) in the sky appear to shift across the sky nightly due to Earth’s rotation. 
  • Discuss how different star patterns are high in the night sky in some seasons but dip below the horizon in other seasons (e.g., use models/ simulations of winter and summer skyline).
  • Explain how the Earth’s movement causes the appearance of sun and star movement (tracking) across the sky.
  • Explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the sun/stars to appear as though they are moving across the sky.

Social Studies

Students will be able to:

  • Identify and locate Florida’s major physical features, including major bodies of water and areas with major islands on a state map such as Florida Keys.
  • Locate, label, and discuss Florida’s cultural features on a Florida map (e.g., state capital-Tallahassee, major cities, sites of important historical events, major tourist attractions).
  • Identify map elements such as title, compass rose, symbols, legend, scale, longitude, and latitude).
  • Indicate cardinal directions and intermediate directions on a map.
  • Interpret information on political and physical maps to explain locations and distances.
  • Compare locations of two places using map elements
