Week #Week #1 August 13th-17th Lesson Plans
Unit of Instruction Applying place value concepts in whole number addition and subtraction/Introduction to Science
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.4.NBT.1.1, MAFS.4.NBT.1.2

  • Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
  • Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

SC.4.N.1.3, SC.4.N.2.1, SC.4.N.1.6

  • Explain that science does not always follow a rigidly defined method (“the scientific method”) but that science does involve the use of observations and empirical evidence.
  • Explain that science focuses solely on the natural world.
  • Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual observations from ideas and inferences about the observations.

NOTE: Begin recording observations of the moon’s visible shape for the next unit. On August 20, 2018 begin daily observations of the moon’s progression towards a full moon.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

  1. Demonstrate with models that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
  2. Explain that a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
  3. Read and write multi-digit numbers through one million in base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
  4. Compare two multi-digit numbers to 1,000,000 using place value and record the comparison numerically using the following symbols: <, >, or =.

SCIENCE

  1. Set up a science notebook that will be used all year by students.
  2. Explore various fields of science realizing that not all scientists follow the scientific method for experimental investigations (e.g., biologist vs. paleontologist or astronomer vs. botanist).
  3. Explain the role of a scientist (ask questions and find answers based on evidence).
  4. Explain that science does involve the use of observations and evidence.
  5. Define science (study of the natural world through observation and evidence).
  6. Record observations of an object and/or an event in a science notebook using a variety of data collection tools (e.g., diagrams, charts, graphs).
  7. Make inferences based on observations.
  8. Distinguish observations from inferences.
  9. Communicate observations and inferences with others in the classroom.
  10. Critique each other’s findings through engaging discussions.
