Unit of InstructionSolving measurement problems using the four operations (12 days)/Heat/St. Augustine
Standard(s) Taught



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. 


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.


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.



Identify common materials that conduct heat well or poorly.


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



Identify the significance of St. Augustine as the oldest permanent European settlement in the United States

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


Solve multi-step word problems (e., up to 3 stepsthat involve the four operations using strategies for this grade level (e.g., rectangular arrays, area models, properties of operations, etc.).

Represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.

Interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.

Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.

Use the four operations to solve word problems involving money including whole numbers only.

Apply an understanding of addition and subtraction, place value, and flexibility with multiple strategies to use the standard algorithms for addition and subtraction.

Use the four operations to solve word problems involving intervals of time including whole numbers only and represent the intervals of time using linear models.

Determine if a given equation is true or false by comparing, composing, and/or decomposing the numbers without solving.

Compare the two sides of an equation to determine the unknown value without solving.


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 which materials are the best conductors of heat (e.g., clay, metal, and glass).

Investigate which materials are non-conductors/insulators of heat (e.g., plastic, wood, Styrofoam).

Make inferences about observations made during conductivity investigations.

Form conclusions about which materials conduct heat well or poorly based on investigations.

Investigate and diagram the direction of heat flow (hot  cold).

Record observations of heat transfer (in the form of temperature changes) within tables, charts, and graphs.

Analyze and form conclusions based on their recorded observations and data.


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
