Determine whether an equation is true or false by using comparative relational thinking. For example, without adding 60 and 24, determine whether the equation 60 + 24 = 57 + 27 is true or false.
 Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a onedigit whole number, and multiply two twodigit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
 Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
 Find wholenumber quotients and remainders with up to fourdigit dividends and onedigit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
 Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having wholenumber answers, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
SC.4.E.6.2, SC.4.E.6.1
 Identify the physical properties of common earthforming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color, and recognize the role of minerals in the formation of rocks.
 Identify the three categories of rocks: igneous, (formed from molten rock); sedimentary (pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms); and metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure).
SS.4.C.3.1
 Identify the three branches (Legislative, Judicial, Executive) of government in Florida and the powers of each.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria 

MATH
 Use manipulatives or drawings of a model to solve multidigit multiplication problems that extend to 2digit by 2digit or up to 4digit by 1digit.
 Solve multidigit multiplication problems that extend to 2digit by 2digit or up to 4digit by 1digit using a variety of strategies. During Number Talks
 Apply the perimeter formula (P = 2l + 2w) in real world and mathematical situations.
 Apply the area formula (A = lw) in real world and mathematical situations.
 Solve for missing dimensions of rectangles when provided with the perimeter and/or area.
 Solve problems involving area of a composite figure composed of rectangles.
 Explain how two or more numbers relate to each other within an equation.
 Solve multistep word problems (i.e., up to 3 steps) that involve multiplication and/or division using various strategies.
 Represent a multistep word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
 Assess the reasonableness of answers to multistep word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.
 Solve division of a multidigit number by a onedigit number using a variety of strategies.
SCIENCE
 Identify the physical properties of common earthforming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color.
 Investigate and record the physical properties of minerals using technology and tools when appropriate (for hardness you may use a glass plate or other minerals; for streak color you may use a streak plate or unglazed tile).
 Explain that investigations of minerals do not always follow the scientific method but do involve the use of observations and evidence.
 Compare observations made by other classmates explaining any differences in data.
 Compare minerals based on physical properties.
 Explain the role of minerals (clay, quartz, feldspar, calcite, talc, pyrite, graphite, and mica) and their importance in rock formation (i.e.: 2 or more minerals make up a rock).
 Use technology and tools to study and investigate samples of rocks.
 Observe and identify examples for each of the three categories of rocks (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic).
 Construct models for each of the three categories of rocks to include major details.
 Differentiate between the three different categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their physical properties.
SOCIAL STUDIES
 Identify the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of Florida’s government.
 Compare powers of Florida’s three branches of government.
 Provide examples of actions taken by each of Florida’s three branches of government.
