Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


Students will:

• interpret a basic multiplication equation as a comparison (e.g., if a = n × b, then a is n times as much as b).

• represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparison as multiplication equations.

• explain that a digit in one place is worth ten times the value of the place to its right by connecting to measurement conversions within the metric system.

• know relative size of measurement units within one system.

• convert larger units of measure into smaller equivalent units (required units are listed on Grade 4 FSA Mathematics Reference Sheet).

• complete a two-column table (function table) showing measurement equivalents and relate measurement conversions to multiplicative comparisons (e.g., 1 yard is 3 times as long as 1 foot).


Students will:

• 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).
