Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

  1. Decompose a mixed number into a sum of fractions equal to 1 and a fraction less than 1 to find an equivalent fraction to replace the mixed number in an addition or subtraction situation.
  2. Find equivalent sums or differences by converting fractions greater than 1 to mixed numbers by decomposing the fraction into a sum of fractions equal to 1 and fractions less than 1.
  3. Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators using equivalent fractions, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
  4. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions and mixed numbers with like denominators using visual fraction models (e., circular models, rectangular models, and number line models) and/or equations.
  5. Create a line plot to display measurement data including fraction units of halves, quarters, and eighths.
  6. Use the measurement data on a line plot to solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators.

SCIENCE

  1. Review how light travels in a straight path until interrupted by an object.
  2. Review how light passes through other objects (transparent, translucent, opaque).
  3. Review how light reflects, bends, and absorbs
  4. Observe and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, and the energy of motion (mechanical).
  5. Identify examples of these energy forms in their life and in the natural world.
  6. Compare and contrast these types of energy.
  7. Describe the requirements/components necessary for sound to be produced.
  8. Investigate the production of sound (g., tuning forks, hollow tubes, vocal cords, or water bottles filled with different amounts of water).
  9. Explain that sound is produced by vibrating objects.
  10. Investigate variations in pitch (g., water bottle liquids, rulers, straws, stretched rubber bands).
  11. Explain that pitch depends on the speed (fast and slow) an object vibrates and the measurements (size and length) of the object.

SOCIAL STUDIES

  1. Chronicle significant events of the Florida civil right movement, including the Tallahassee bus boycotts in 1956 and the Tallahassee sit-ins in1960.
  2. Correlate Florida’s role in the civil rights movement with the national civil rights movement. Examples may include, but are not limited to, civil disobedience and the legacy of early civil rights pioneers Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore
