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.

Science: SC.4.E.5.4 SC.4.E.5.2, SC.4.E.5.5

Relate that the rotation of Earth (day and night) and apparent movements of the sun, moon, and stars are connected.

Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month.

Investigate and report the effects of space research and exploration on the economy and culture of Florida.



Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


1.      Apply the area formula (A = l × w) in real world and mathematical situations.

2.      Solve for missing dimensions of rectangles when provided with the perimeter and/or area.

3.      Solve problems involving area of a composite figure composed of rectangles.

  1. Apply the perimeter formula (P = 2l + 2w) in real world and mathematical situations.




  1. Recognize that the moon does not produce its own light; it reflects light from the sun.
  2. Recognize that the moon revolves around (orbits) Earth in about 28 days as Earth revolves around (orbits) the sun.
  3. Describe the changes (patterns) that occur to the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month that have been recorded in a science notebook.
  4. Predict the changes in the observable shape of the moon starting at any point in the cycle.
  5. Sequence moon patterns.
  6. Compare observable shapes of the moon.
  7. Explain that the moon’s physical shape does not actually change.
  8. Explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the moon to appear as though it is moves across the sky in the day or night sky.
