Standard(s) Taught

MATH:  4.OA.1.1     4.OA.1.2    4.OA.1.3    4.OA.1.a   4.OA.1.b   4.OA.2.4

Use operations with whole numbers to solve problems:

• Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
• Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison (using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem), distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
• Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which the remainder must be interpreted. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies, including rounding.
• Determine whether an equation is true or false by using comparative relational thinking. (for example: without adding 60 and 24, determine whether the equation 60 + 24 = 57 +27 is true or false).  **new standard in Florida
• Determine the unknown whole number in an equation relating four whole numbers using comparative relational thinking. (for example:  solve 76 + 9 = n + 5 for n by arguing that nine is four more than 5, so the unknown number must be 4 greater than 76). **new standard in Florida

SCIENCE:  SC.4.E.6.6   SC.4.P.8.1

• Identify resources available in Florida: water, phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon, wind, and solar energy.
• Measure and compare objects and materials based on their physical properties including: mass, shape, volume, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, and attraction to magnets.

SOCIAL STUDIES:  SS.4.A.2.1    SS.4.A.1.1   SS.4.A.1.2    SS.4.G.1.2    SS.4.A.3.4

• Compare Native American tribes in Florida
• Analyze primary and secondary resources to identify significant individuals and events  throughout Florida history.
• Synthesize information related to Florida history through print and electronic media.
• Locate and label cultural features on a Florida map.
• Explain the purposes of and daily life on missions.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

• Interpret a basic multiplication equation as a comparison.
• Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparison as multiplication equations.
• Distinguish multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
• Solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison.
• Solve multi-step word problems that involve multiplication and/or division using 4th grade strategies. (rectangular arrays, area models, partial products/quotients, etc.)
• Represent multi-step word problems using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for an unknown number.
• Interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
• Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies, including rounding.
• Determine if a given equation is true or false by comparing, composing, and/or decomposing the numbers without solving.
• Compare two sides of an equation to determine the unknown value without solving.
• Identify natural resources available in Florida (water, phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon, wind and solar).
• Distinguish Florida’s natural resources as renewable (water, wind, solar, trees)  or nonrenewable (phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon).
• Compare objects based on observable and measurable physical properties.
• Investigate and explain that all matter has the following measurable properties: volume (takes up space) and mass (weight).
• Know the differences between FL Native American tribes.
