Grade Level4
Week #12-14
Unit of InstructionUnderstanding Fraction Equivalence and Comparison/Properties of Matter
Standard(s) Taught
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math

Students will:

• explain, using visual representation, how and why fractions can be equivalent even though the number and size of the parts are not the same.

• recognize and generate equivalent fractions by partitioning number lines, rectangles, squares, and circles using visual models.

• explain that fractions can only be compared when they refer to the same sized whole (e.g., 1/ 2 of a small pizza is not the same size as 1 /2of a large pizza).
NOTE: Denominators limited to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 100.

• compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators by: o using benchmark fractions (e.g., 5/ 8 is close to 1 /2 and 1/ 10 is close to 0, therefore 5/ 8 > 1 /10 ).

  • reasoning about their size or location on a number line.
  • using visual models to create fractions with common numerators or common denominators.
  • record the results of comparisons with the symbols <, > or =. • justify the conclusions of comparisons

Science

Students will:

• 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.

• explain any differences that may have occurred across groups. 

• investigate and describe properties of water in all three states.

• identify common uses of water in all three states.

• explain the importance of water to life on Earth.

• 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.
