MAFS.4.MD.1.3

  • 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.

SC.4.E.6.2, SC.4.E.6.1

  • Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming 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

  1. Apply the perimeter formula (P = 2l + 2w) in real world and mathematical situations.
  2. Apply the area formula (A = lw) in real world and mathematical situations.
  3. Solve for missing dimensions of rectangles when provided with the perimeter and/or area.
  4. Solve problems involving area of a composite figure composed of rectangles.

SCIENCE

  1. Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color.
  2. 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).
  3. Explain that investigations of minerals do not always follow the scientific method but do involve the use of observations and evidence.
  4. Compare observations made by other classmates explaining any differences in data.
  5. Compare minerals based on physical properties.
  6. 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).
  7. Use technology and tools to study and investigate samples of rocks.
  8. Observe and identify examples for each of the three categories of rocks (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic).
  9. 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

  1. Identify the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of Florida’s government.
  2. Compare powers of Florida’s three branches of government.
  3. Provide examples of actions taken by each of Florida’s three branches of government.
