- 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.
- Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

- 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.
- Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual observations from ideas and inferences about the observations.
NOTE: Begin recording observations of the moon’s visible shape for the next unit. On August 20, 2018 begin daily observations of the moon’s progression towards a full moon.
- Demonstrate with models that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
- Explain that a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
- Read and write multi-digit numbers through one million in base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
- Compare two multi-digit numbers to 1,000,000 using place value and record the comparison numerically using the following symbols: <, >, or =.
- 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).
- Record observations of an object and/or an event in a science notebook using a variety of data collection tools (e.g., diagrams, charts, graphs).
- Make inferences based on observations.
- Distinguish observations from inferences.
- Communicate observations and inferences with others in the classroom.
- Critique each other’s findings through engaging discussions.
