MATH

MAFS.4.OA.1.3, MAFS.4.NBT.2.4 (not fluently), MAFS.4.MD.1.2 (only whole numbers), MAFS.4.OA.1.a and MAFS.4.OA.1.b (Number Talks)

  • Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, 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.
  • Add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
  • Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, money, and intervals of time using linear models.
  • 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.
  • Determine the unknown whole number in an equation relating four whole numbers using comparative relational thinking. For example, solve 76 + 0 + n + 5 for n by arguing that nine is four more than five, so the unknown number must be four greater than 76.

SCIENCE

SC.4.P.11.2, SC.4.P.11.1

  • Identify common materials that conduct heat well or poorly.
  • Recognize that heat flows from a hot object to a cold object and that heat flow may cause materials to change temperature.

SOCIAL STUDIES

SS.4.A.5.2

  • Summarize challenges Floridians faced during Reconstruction.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

  1. Solve multi-step word problems (e., up to 3 steps) that involve the four operations using strategies for this grade level (e.g., rectangular arrays, area models, properties of operations, etc.).
  2. Represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
  3. Interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
  4. Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.
  5. Use the four operations to solve word problems involving money including whole numbers only.
  6. Apply an understanding of addition and subtraction, place value, and flexibility with multiple strategies to use the standard algorithms for addition and subtraction.
  7. Use the four operations to solve word problems involving intervals of time including whole numbers only and represent the intervals of time using linear models.
  8. Determine if a given equation is true or false by comparing, composing, and/or decomposing the numbers without solving.
  9. Compare the two sides of an equation to determine the unknown value without solving.

SCIENCE

  1. Review how things that give off light often give off heat.
  2. Review how heat is produced when two objects rub against each other.
  3. Investigate heat energy by measuring temperature changes in a liquid.
  4. Compare observations with classmates explaining any differences that occur.
  5. Collect and record temperature readings during investigations in charts, tables, and graphs.
  6. Investigate which materials are the best conductors of heat (e.g., clay, metal, and glass).
  7. Investigate which materials are non-conductors/insulators of heat (e.g., plastic, wood, Styrofoam).
  8. Make inferences about observations made during conductivity investigations.
  9. Form conclusions about which materials conduct heat well or poorly based on investigations.
  10. Investigate and diagram the direction of heat flow (hot  cold).
  11. Record observations of heat transfer (in the form of temperature changes) within tables, charts, and graphs.
  12. Analyze and form conclusions based on their recorded observations and data.

 SOCIAL STUDIES

  1. Identify the events surrounding Reconstruction.
  2. Describe the challenges of Reconstruction in Florida, including segregation. Examples may also include, but are not limited to, sharecropping and black participation in state and federal governments.
