MAFS.4.NBT.1.1   NBT.1.2

  • Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. 
  • Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place using <  = and > symbols to record the comparisions.
  • Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. (multiply and divide by 10 up and down the place value chart).

SC.4.N.1.3   N.1.6     N.2.1

  • Set up Science Interactive Notebooks
  • Explain that Science does not always follow a rigidly defined method- that “the Scientific Method” may be called “the Methods of Science.”
  • Explain that Science involves he use of observations and empirical evidence.
  • Understand that Science focuses solely on the natural world.

 

 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH:

  1. Demonstrate with models, that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
  2. Explain that a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
  3. Read and write multi-digit numbers through one million in base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
  4. Compare two multi-digit numbers to 1,000,000 using place value and record the comparison numerically using the symbols <, >, and =.

SCIENCE:

  1. Set up student Science Interactive Notebooks that students will use all year.
  2. Explore various fields of science realizing that not all scientists follow the scientific method for experimental investigations (e.g. astronomer vs botanist or biologist vs paleontologist).
  3. Explain the role of a scientist. (ask questions and find answers based on evidence)
  4. Explain that science does involve the use of observations and evidence. (data collection)
  5. Define science (the study of the natural world through observations and evidence)
