Quarter 1, Week 5: Sept. 10-14

TeacherBrooke Brackney
Subject AreaMath and Science
Grade Level4th
Week #5
Unit of InstructionExploring multiples and factors/Earth’s Movement--Stars/Getting to Know Florida (Geography)
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



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.

Social Studies


Identify physical features of Florida.


Locate and label cultural features on a Florida map.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


Students will be able to:

  • Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of its factors.
  • Determine whether a whole number is a multiple of a given one-digit number.
  • Determine factors of whole numbers in the range 1-100.
  • Determine if a number in the range 1-100 is prime or composite.
  • Generate a number pattern that follows a given rule.
  • Identify features in patterns.


Students will be able to:

  • 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.
  • 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.


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).
  • Interpret information on political and physical maps to explain locations and distances.
  • Compare locations of two places using map elements
