Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math

Students will:

• interpret an equation involving multiplying a fraction by a whole number as a verbal comparison (e.g., if 5/4= 5 x 1/4, then 5/4 is 5 times as much as 1/4).

• represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparison involving multiplying a fraction by a whole number as a multiplication equation (e.g., Rob’s stick is 6 times as long as Todd’s. Todd’s stick is 1 5 yard long. A multiplication equation that represents the situation is 6 x 1/5 = 6/5 .)

Science

Students will:

• identify the reproductive structures of a flower and their functions.

o stamen/anther (male parts) – makes pollen

o pistil/carpel (female parts) – produces ovules

o ovule – becomes a seed

o ovary – becomes a fruit

• identify and describe processes of reproduction (sexual) in flowering plants.

o pollination – the transfer of pollen from the male parts (stamens) to the female parts (pistils) of a flower

o fertilization (seed production) – the joining of an egg cell and a sperm cell

o seed dispersal – the transport of seed from one location to another

o germination – the sprouting of a plant from a seed
