MATH

MAFS.4.NF.3.6

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

MAFS.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

SC.4.L.16.1

Identify processes of sexual reproduction in flowering plants, including pollination, fertilization (seed production), seed dispersal, and germination

 

SOCIAL STUDIES

SS.4.A.5.1

Describe Florida’s involvement (secession, blockades of
ports, the battles of Ft. Pickens, Olustee, Ft. Brooke, Natural Bridge,
food supply) in the Civil War

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

Represent fractions with a denominator of 10 and fractions with a denominator of 100 using models (g., grids, base ten blocks, money, and number lines).

Express a fraction with a denominator of 10 as an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100.

Add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100 by finding equivalent fractions with like denominators.

Demonstrate place value of decimals through the hundredths using concrete materials (g., decimal grids, base ten blocks, number lines).

Translate a fraction with a denominator of 10 or 100 into its equivalent decimal form.

Translate a decimal to the tenths or hundredths place into its equivalent fraction form.

Represent a decimal value on a number line.

Explain that decimals can only be compared when they refer to the same size wholes. NOTE: Decimals may be greater than 1.

Compare decimals with and without models (such as decimal grids, money, or base ten blocks) and record the comparison numerically using symbols: <, > or =.

Justify the comparison by reasoning about the size of the decimal.

SCIENCE

Identify the reproductive structures of a flower and their functions.

  • stamen/anther (male parts) – makes pollen
  • pistil/carpel (female parts) – produces ovules
  • ovule – becomes a seed
  • ovary – becomes a fruit

Identify and describe processes of reproduction (sexual) in flowering plants.

  • pollination – the transfer of pollen from the male parts (stamens) to the female parts (pistils) of a flower
  • fertilization (seed production) – the joining of an egg cell and a sperm cell
  • seed dispersal – the transport of seed from one location to another
  • germination – the sprouting of a plant from a seed

SOCIAL STUDIES

  • Describe the conditions leading up to Florida’s secession from the Union.
  • Summarize Florida’s involvement in the Civil War.
  • Identify major moments in Florida’s Civil War history, including secession,
    port blockades, significant battles. Examples may include, but are not
    limited to, Ft. Zachary Taylor, the plantation culture, and the First Florida
    Cavalry
