MATH:    MA.4.NSO.2.2      MA.4.AR.1.1     MA.4.NSO.2.3    MA.4.NSO.2.5

  • Multiply two whole numbers, up to three digits by up to two digits, with procedural reliability.
  • Solve real world problems involving multiplication and division of whole numbers including problems in which remainders must be interpreted within the context.
  • Multiply two whole numbers, each up to two digits, including using a standard algorithm with procedural fluency.
  • Explore the multiplication and division of multi-digit whole numbers using estimation, rounding, and place value.

SCIENCE:   SC.4.E.6.5     SC.4.E.6.1

  • Investigate how technology and tools help to extend the ability of humans to observe very small things and very large things.
  • Identify the three categories of rocks: igneous (formed from molten rock), sedimentary (pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms), and metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure).
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • Use place value and properties to multiply by multiples of ten.
  • Use the Associative Property to multiply by multiples of ten.
  • Describe a pattern with zeros when multiplying by multiples of ten.
  • Use rounding and compatible numbers to estimate products.
  • Discuss the types of investigations in which a webcam, telescope, microscope, or hand lens might be used.
  • Research the histories of the microscope and telescope reporting on what is learned.
  • Identify the telescope and satellite as tools that have allowed scientists to see very large things, such as the Earth, the solar system, and parts of the universe.
  • Use technology and tools to study and investigate samples of rocks.
  • Observe and identify examples for each of the three categories of rocks.
  • Construct models for each of the three categories of rocks to include major details.
  • Explain pictorially and in words, the different ways rocks are formed.
  • Describe how each category of rocks is formed:   Igneous (formed from cooled molten rock); Metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure); Sedimentary (formed with other pieces of rock and fossilized organisms are compacted together).
  • Differentiate between the three different categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their physical properties.
