|Subject Area||Math and Science|
|Unit of Instruction||Understanding fractions and multiplication/Changes in matter|
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• 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).
• 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 ).
• review the physical changes of water. Include reasoning why water changes state.
• identify familiar physical changes in matter in which the objects’ properties are retained (e.g., cutting, tearing, crumpling, folding, melting, freezing, dissolving).
• identify familiar chemical changes in matter that result in a new substance with new properties (e.g., burning, frying, rusting, grilling, toasting, decaying plant and animal matter).
• record observations of physical and chemical changes in a science notebook.
• make inferences about observations made of physical and chemical changes
• describe observable signs that a chemical change may exhibit (smell, color, heat, fizzing sound, and substance given off).
