• Investigate factors and multiples.
• Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100.
• Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range of 1-100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number.
• Determine whether a given whole number in the range of 1-100 is prime or composite.
• Generate a number pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself.

SCIENCE:  SC.4    E.6.2    E.6.1

• Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color, and recognize the role of minerals in the formation of rocks.
• 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).

SOCIAL STUDIES   SS.4     C.1.1    C.2.1    C.2.2   C.2.3

• Describe how Florida’s constitution protects the rights of citizens and provides for the structure, function, and purposes of state government.
• Discuss public issues in Florida that impact the daily lives of its citizens.
• Identify ways citizens work together to influence government and help solve community and state problems.
• Explain the importance of public service, and volunteerism.
• Define and list different types of public service.
• Explain the importance an impact of public service and voting.
• Identify different types of volunteerism and their impact.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

MATH:

• Generate a number pattern that follows a given rule.
• Identify features in patterns.
• Identify the equal sign as expressing equivalence or same value between numbers.
• Use manipulatives or drawings of a model to solve multi-digit multiplication problems that extend to 2 digit by 2 digit or up to 4 digit by one digit.
• Create a balanced equation by comparing 2 sides of an equation.
• Solve multi-step word problems that involve multiplication and/or division by using various strategies.
• Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.

SCIENCE

• 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 (for hardness you may use a glass plate or other minerals; for streak color you may use a streak plate or unglazed tile).
• Explain that investigations of minerals do not always follow the scientific method but do involve the use of observation and evidence.
• Compare observations made by other classmates explaining any differences in data.
• Compare minerals based on physical properties.
• Explain the role of minerals (clay, quartz, feldspar, calcite, talc, pyrite, graphite, and mica) and their importance in rock formation. (i.e. 2 or more minerals make up a rock).
• Use technology and tools to study and investigate samples of rocks (igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic).
• Construct models for each of the three categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their physical properties.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

• Explain how public issues impact citizen’s daily lives.
• Summarize ways citizens can influence government and public policy.
• Identify community and state problems.
• Describe how citizens, including children, can help solve community and state problems. Examples may include voting, petitioning, conservation, and recycling.
