Standard(s) Taught

Math: 4.NF.3.5, 4.NF.3.6, 4.NF.3.7, 4.MD.1.

1.     Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 and 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.

2.     Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100 and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.

3.     Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.

4.     Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals. Represent fractional quantities of distance and intervals of time using linear models. NOTE: This is an amended Florida Standard.

 

 

 

 

Science: SC.4.L.16.4

1.     Compare and contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants and animals, such as those that undergo incomplete and complete metamorphosis, and flowering and nonflowering seed-bearing plants.

 

 
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:

  • Demonstrate place value of decimals through the hundredths using

            concrete materials (e.g., decimal grids, base ten blocks, number

            lines).

  • Translate a fraction with a denominator of 10 or 100 into its

            equivalent decimal form.

  • Translate a decimal to the tenths or hundredths place into its

            equivalent fraction form.

  • Represent fractions with a denominator of 10 and fractions with a

           denominator of 100 using models (e.g., grids, base ten blocks, and

           number lines).

  • Express a fraction with a denominator of 10 as an equivalent fraction

           with a denominator of 100.

  • Add two fractions with denominators of 10 and/or 100 by finding

           equivalent fractions with like denominators.

  • Justify the comparison by reasoning about the size of the decimal
  • Represent a decimal value on a number line.
  • Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distance

           (i.e., inch, feet, yard, mile; millimeter, centimeter, meter, kilometer),

           including simple fractions or decimals.

  • Represent fractional quantities of distance using linear models.
  • Use the four operations to solve word problems involving intervals of

            time including simple fractions and represent these intervals of time

            using linear models.

  • Use the four operations to solve word problems involving money

            including simple decimals.

 

Science:

  • Review that all living things have a life cycle.
  • Explore life cycles of various plants found in Florida (e.g., orange tree, pine tree, hibiscus).
  • Diagram the major stages in the life cycles of plants.

(seed àseedling àmature plantàflower or cone).

  • Compare the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants, both flowering and nonflowering seed-bearing plants (e.g., daisies and pine trees).
