MATH

4.MD.2.4

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.

4.NF.3.6

Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.

4.NF.3.7

Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols <, >, or =, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.

 

SCIENCE

4.N.1.1

Raise questions about the natural world, use appropriate reference materials that support
understanding to obtain information (identifying the source), conduct both individual and
team investigations through free exploration and systematic investigations, and generate
appropriate explanations based on those explorations.

4.N.1.4

Attempt reasonable answers to scientific questions and cite evidence in support.

4.N.1.6

Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual
observations from ideas and inferences about the observations.

SC.4.P.11.2

Identify common materials that conduct hear well or poorly

 

SOCIAL STUDIES

SS.4.A.3.8

Explain how the Seminole tribe formed and the purpose for their migration

SS.4.A.2.10

Identify the causes and effects of the Seminole Wars

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

Decompose a mixed number into a sum of fractions equal to 1 and a fraction less than 1 to find an equivalent fraction to replace the mixed number in an addition or subtraction situation.

Find equivalent sums or differences by converting fractions greater than 1 to mixed numbers by decomposing the fraction into a sum of fractions equal to 1 and fractions less than 1.

Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators using equivalent fractions, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.

Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions and mixed numbers with like denominators using visual fraction models (e., circular models, rectangular models, and number line models) and/or equations.

Create a line plot to display measurement data including fraction units of halves, quarters, and eighths.

Use the measurement data on a line plot to solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators.

 

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

Collect and record temperature readings during investigations in charts, tables, and graphs

 

SOCIAL STUDIES

Explain the reasons for the large migration of Creeks to Florida and how they became known as Seminoles

Outlines the events and conflicts leading up to the First Seminole War

Summarize the outcomes of the First, Second, and Third Seminole Wars
