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

  • Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding. 
  • Investigate factors and multiples. a. Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1–100. b. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1–100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. c. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1–100 is prime or composite.

SCIENCE:   SC.4.P.8.1   SC.4.P.8.3 

  • Measure and compare objects and materials based on their physical properties including: mass, shape, volume, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, attraction to magnets. 
  • Explore the Law of Conservation of Mass by demonstrating that the mass of a whole object is always the same as the sum of the masses of its parts.

SOCIAL STUDIES:   SS.4.A.3.2   SS.4.A.3.1 

  • Describe causes and effects of European colonization on the Native American tribes of Florida.
  • Identify explorers who came to Florida and the motivations for their expeditions.

 

 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

  • define and describe European colonization of Florida.
  • summarize the effects of European colonization on Native American tribes using primary and secondary resources. Examples may include but are not limited to protection of ships, colonization, disease, spreading of religion.
  • identify explorers who landed in Florida.
  • explain why explorers came to Florida and the outcome of their expeditions. (ex. Ponce de Leon, Juan Garrido, Esteban Dorantes, Tristan de Luna).
  • compare objects based on observable and measurable physical properties (shape, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, attraction to magnets, mass, volume, temperature).
  •  investigate and explain that all matter has the following measurable properties: volume (takes up space) and mass (weight). 
  • record and compare the mass and volume of solid and liquid matter using metric units. 
  • record and compare the volume of regular- and irregular-shaped solids using the water displacement method. 
  • display data appropriately in charts, tables, and graphs. 
  • compare measurement data with other lab groups checking for accuracy and explain any differences that may have occurred across groups.
  • explore the Law of Conservation of Mass (whole = sum of its parts) to obtain the mass of various objects using tools and technology.
  •  demonstrate that the mass of a whole object is always equal to the sum of its parts.
  • represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the 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 factor pairs of whole numbers 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 1-100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. 
  • determine if a number in the range 1-100 is prime or composite.

Additional Resources

Parents:  I would like to take this opportunity to restate my “Retake Policy” for students. Students who score below a 70 on a summative test are required to retake the test.  Often, as with Science or Social Studies, students will not do well on a test simply because they did not study the material they were asked to study before the test. They will also have a corrected copy of their test to study from along with the notes to study for the test. If they have any questions about items on the test, they are welcome to ask about them for clarification. As far as Math, retakes are done until the student can pass a test on the material. Students will be remediated in a small group or individually using supplemental materials on the same skills they need to master. Retakes will be done within a week of the failed test. Please message me with any questions you may have.  Thank you.
