Subject AreaMath/Science/Social Studies
Grade Level4
Week #9
Unit of InstructionUsing Multiplication and Division Strategies with larger numbers/Rocks and Minerals/Florida Tribes
Standard(s) Taught



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.



Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color, and recognize the role of minerals in the formation of rocks.


Identify the three categories of rocks: igneous, (formed from molten rock); sedimentary (pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms); and metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure).

Social Studies


Compare Native American tribes in Florida.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


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.


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.

Explain the rock cycle and different processes that rocks may undergo as they change

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

Present information through a poster or powerpoint presentation
