|Unit of Instruction||Applying place value concepts in whole number addition and subtraction/Introduction to science|
Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division
Explain that science does not always follow a rigidly defined method (“the scientific method”) but that science does involve the use of observations and empirical evidence.
Explain that science focuses solely on the natural world.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• demonstrate with models that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times the value of the place to its right.
• explain that a digit in one place is worth ten times the value of the place to its right. E.g., 10 × 540 = 5,400; the 5 in 5,400 represents 5 thousands which is 10 times as much as the 5 hundreds in 540.
• set up a science notebook that will be used all year by students.
• explore various fields of science realizing that not all scientists follow the scientific method for experimental investigations (e.g., biologist vs. paleontologist or astronomer vs. botanist).
• explain the role of a scientist (ask questions and find answers based on evidence).
• explain that science does involve the use of observations and evidence.
• define science (study of the natural world through observation and evidence).
