Unit of InstructionAdd/Subtract Fractions- Energy & Motion- FL History: Seminoles
Standard(s) Taught

MATH:     MAFS.4.NF.2.3

  • Understand a fraction a/b with a >1 as a sum of fractions 1/b

a. Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.

b. Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositons by using a virtual fraction model.

c. Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators: by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.

d. Solve word problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators (eg. by using fraction models and equations to represent the problem).

SCIENCE:   SC.4.P.8.4    SC.4.P.10.1

  • Investigate and describe that magnets can attract magnetic materials and attract and repel other magnets.
  • Observe and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, and the energy of motion.

SOCIAL STUDIES:  SS.4.A.3.8     SS.4.A.3.9     SS.4.A.1.1     SS.4.A.1.2

  • Explain how the Seminole tribe formed and the purpose for their migration.
  • Explain how FL became a US territory (Adams-Onis Treaty).
  • Analyze primary and secondary sources to identify significant individuals and events throughout FL history.
  • Synthesize information related to FL history through print and electronic media.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

  • Demonstrate with concrete and visual models that adding fractions referring to the same size whole is joining parts of the whole.
  • Demonstrate with concrete and visual models that subtracting fractions referring to the same size whole is separating parts of the whole.
  • Decompose a fraction (less than or greater than 1) into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way using visual models.
  • Record the decomposition of a fraction by an equation and justify the decomposition.
  • Investigate and classify objects that are attracted to magnets (paper clips, iron filings, scissors) and those that are not (glass, penny, eraser, foil, nickel, steel).
  • Investigate that all magnets, regardless of shape, have a north pole and a south pole, although they may not be marked.
  • Investigate the presence of a magnetic field of different shaped magnets using iron filings.
  • Investigate how magnets attract and repel other magnets based on the presence of a magnetic field.
  • Review how light travels in a straight path until interrupted by an object.
  • Review how light passes through other objects (transparent, translucent, opaque).
  • Review how light reflects, bends, and absorbs.
  • Observe and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, and mechanical (energy of motion).
  • Identify examples of these energy forms in their life and in the natural world.
  • Compare and contrast these types of energy.
