Standard(s) Taught

Math

MAFS.4.NBT.2.5

Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

MAFS.4.NBT.2.6

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.NBT.4.6
 
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
 

Science

SC.4.P.2.2

Explain how minerals are identified using tests for the physical properties of hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak.

SC.4.P.2.3

Classify rocks as metamorphic, sedimentary or igneous based on their composition, how they are formed and the processes that create them.

Social Studies

SS.4.A.2.1

Compare Native American tribes in Florida.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math

Solve division of a multi-digit number by a one-digit number using a variety of strategies.

Apply the perimeter formula (P = 2l + 2w) in real world and mathematical situations.

Apply the area formula (A = lw) 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.

Explain how two or more numbers relate to each other within an equation.

Create a balanced equation by comparing two sides of an equation.

Determine the unknown value to create a balanced equation.

Science

Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color.

Investigate and record the physical properties of minerals using technology and tools when appropriate (for hardness you may use a glass plate or other minerals; for streak color you may use a streak plate or unglazed tile).

Explain that investigations of minerals do not always follow the scientific method but do involve the use of observations and evidence.

Compare observations made by other classmates explaining any differences in data.

Compare minerals based on physical properties.

Explain the role of minerals (clay, quartz, feldspar, calcite, talc, pyrite, graphite, and mica) and their importance in rock formation (i.e.: 2 or more minerals make up a rock).

Social Studies

Research a tribe native to Florida and explain the following: where they were located in FL, roles/jobs of tribe members, how they lived, what they ate, customs/ceremonies/religious views, enemies/wars, what happened to them
