TeacherKathleen Manning
Subject AreaMath/Science/Social Studies
Grade Level4
Week #11
Unit of InstructionDivision/ Weathering and Erosion/ Florida Native Tribes
Standard(s) Taught

MATH:         4.NBT.2.6  

  •  Use strategies and properties to divide by 1-digit numbers

SCIENCE:  SC.4.E.6.4

  • Describe the basic differences between physical weathering (breaking down of rock by wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants) and erosion (movement of rock by gravity, wind, water, and ice).


  • Compare Native American tribes in Florida.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:

  • Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors.
  • Use strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division.
  • Illustrate and explain calculations using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
  • Use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or area models to solve and explain division problems that involve the division of a multi-digit divident (up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor.
  • Apply an understanding of rectangular arrays and area models to connect to the partial quotients strategy.
  • Observe and record evidence of physical weathering in nature (e.g. plant roots growing up through a sidewalk, cement cracking from weather changes).
  • Describe causes of physical weathering: wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants.
  • Investigate the processes of physical weathering using a model.
  • Observe and record evidence of erosion.
  • Describe causes of erosion: gravity, wind, water, and ice.
  • Investigate the processes of erosion using a model.
  • Discuss the cause/effect relationships for erosion and weathering.
  • Provide examples of how physical weathering and the erosion processes change the Earth’s surface (constructive and destructive).
  • Identify Florida’s different Native American tribes and place them on a map.
  • Summarize the lifestyles of the different Florida tribes.
