Unit of InstructionUnderstanding Fraction Equivalence and Comparison/Properties of Matter/ Identify Early Explorers who landed in Florida
Standard(s) Taught

MATH

MAFS.4.NF.1.1

Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n x a)/(n x b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.

SCIENCE

SC.4.P.8.1, SC.4.P.8.3, SC.4.P.8.2

  • Measure and compare objects and materials based on their physical properties including: mass, shape, volume, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, attraction to magnets.
  • Explore the Law of Conservation of Mass by demonstrating that the mass of a whole object is always the same as the sum of the masses of its parts.
  • Identify properties and common uses of water in each of its states.

 SOCIAL STUDIES

SS.4.A.3.1

  • Identify explorers who came to Florida and the motivations for their expeditions.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

  1. Explain, using visual representation, how and why fractions can be equivalent even though the number and size of the parts are not the same.
  2. Recognize and generate equivalent fractions by partitioning number lines, rectangles, squares, and circles using visual models.

 SCIENCE

  1. Compare objects based on observable and measurable physical properties (shape, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, attraction to magnets, mass, volume, temperature).
  2. Investigate and explain that all matter has the following measurable properties: volume (takes up space) and mass (weight).
  3. Record and compare the mass and volume of solid and liquid matter using metric units.
  4. Record and compare the volume of regular- and irregular-shaped solids using the water displacement method.
  5. Display data appropriately in charts, tables, and graphs.
  6. Compare measurement data with other lab groups checking for accuracy.
  7. Explain any differences that may have occurred across groups.
  8. Explore the Law of Conservation of Mass (whole = sum of its parts) to obtain the mass of various objects using tools and technology.
  9. Demonstrate that the mass of a whole object is always equal to the sum of its parts.
  10. Identify common uses of water in all three states.
  11. Explain the importance of water to life on Earth.
  12. Investigate and describe properties of water in all three states.

 

SOCIAL STUDIES

  1. Identify explorers who landed in Florida
  2. Explain why explorers came to Florida and the outcome of their expeditions.
  3. Examples may include, but not be limited to, Ponce de Leon, Juan Garrido, Esteban Dorantes, Tristan de Luna
