Learning Targets and Learning Criteria | ||

- Demonstrate with models that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times the value of the place to its right.
- Explain that a digit in one place is worth ten times the value of the place to its right.
- Read and write multi-digit numbers through one million in base-ten numerals (standard form), number names (word form), and expanded form.
- Compare two multi-digit numbers to 1,000,000 using place value and record the comparison numerically using the following symbols: <, >, or =.
- Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place between 1,000 and 1,000,000.
- Discuss the cause/effect relationships for erosion and weathering.
- Provide examples of how physical weathering and the erosion processes change Earth’s surface (constructive and destructive).
- Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color.
- Investigate and record the physical properties of minerals using technology and tools when appropriate (hardness-glass plate or other minerals, streak color-streak plate or unglazed tile).
- Compare minerals based on physical properties.
- Explain the role of minerals (e.g., clay, quartz, feldspar) and their importance in rock formation.
- Use technology and tools to study and investigate samples of rocks.
- Observe and identify examples for each of the three categories of rocks (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic).
- Construct models for each of the three categories of rocks to include major details.
- Explain, pictorially and in words, the steps of the rock cycle.
- Describe how each category of rock is formed within the rock cycle.
- igneous – formed from molten rock
- sedimentary – formed with other pieces of rock and fossilized organisms
- metamorphic – formed from heat and pressure
- Differentiate between the three different categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their physical properties.
