Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

MATH:

• Use manipulatives or drawings of arrays to solve and explain multi-digit multiplication problems.
• Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.
• Solve multi-step word problems that involve multiplication and/or division using strategies such as: arrays, area models, properties of operations, etc.
• Represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.

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.
• Explain that investigations of minerals do not always follow the scientific method but do involve the use of observations 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 (2 or more minerals make up a rock).
• Use technology and tools to study and investigate samples of rocks.
• Observe and identify examples for each of the three categories of rocks.
• Differentiate between the 3 different categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their physical properties.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

• Review branches of government, government functions, and major information about the US.
• Identify ways citizens work together to influence government and help solve community and state problems.
