# Quarter 3, Week 28: March 11-14

Teacher Brooke Brackney Math/Science/Social Studies 4 28 Multiplying fractions by a whole number/The Plant Life Cycle
Standard(s) Taught
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

Students will:

• Interpret an equation involving multiplying a fraction by a whole number as a verbal comparison

• Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparison involving multiplying a fraction by a whole number as a multiplication equation (e.g., Rob’s stick is 6 times as long as Todd’s. Todd’s stick is 1 5 yard long. A multiplication equation that represents the situation is 6 x 1 5 = 6 5 .)

SCIENCE

Students will:

• Review that all living things have a life cycle.

• Review the ways plants can reproduce: flowering and non-flowering with cones and spores

• Explore life cycles of various plants found in Florida (e.g., orange tree, pine tree, hibiscus).

• Diagram the major stages in the life cycles of plants. (seed  seedling  mature plant  flower or cone).

• Compare the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants, both flowering and nonflowering seed-bearing plants (e.g., daisies and pine trees).
