Subject AreaMath/Science/Social Studies
Grade Level4
Week #21
Unit of InstructionSolving measurement problems using the four operations/Heat/St. Augustine
Standard(s) Taught

MATH

4.MD.1 Know relative sizes of measurement unis within one system of unites including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. 

4.MD.2 Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as a number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.

4.MD.4 Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit 1/2, 1/4, 1/8. Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots.

SCIENCE 

SC.4.P.11.2

Identify common materials that conduct heat well or poorly.

SC.4.P.11.1

Recognize that heat flows from a hot object to a cold object and that heat flow may cause materials to change temperature.

SOCIAL STUDIES

SS.4.A.3.3 Identify the significance of St. Augustine as the oldest permanent European settlement in the United States.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH 

  • Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit
  • Develop an understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication 
  • Understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends
  • Develop an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers

SCIENCE

  • Review how things that give off light often give off heat.
  • Review how heat is produced when two objects rub against each other.
  • Investigate heat energy by measuring temperature changes in a liquid.
  • Compare observations with classmates explaining any differences that occur.
  • Collect and record temperature readings during investigations in charts, tables, and graphs.
  • Investigate and diagram the direction of heat flow (hot  cold).

SOCIAL STUDIES

  • Summarize St. Augustine’s significance in Florida history and United States history by researching a specific historical landmark in St. Augustine and reporting on it
