|Subject Area||Math and Science|
|Unit of Instruction||Adding and Subtracting Fractions/Magnets|
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• demonstrate with concrete and visual models (i.e., number lines, rectangles, squares, and circles) that adding fractions referring to the same size whole is joining parts of the wholes.
• demonstrate with concrete and visual models that subtracting fractions referring to the same size whole is separating parts of the wholes.
• decompose a fraction (less than or greater than 1) into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way using visual models.
• record the decomposition of a fraction by an equation and justify the decomposition.
• investigate and classify objects that are attracted to magnets (paper clips, iron filings, scissors) and those that are not (bottle, penny, copper wire, eraser, foil, nickel, steel).
• investigate that all magnets, regardless of shape, have a north pole (N) and a south pole (S) although they may not be marked.
• investigate the presence of a magnetic field with different-shaped magnets.
• describe the effects of the magnetic field of different-shaped magnets using iron filings.
• investigate how magnets attract and repel other magnets based on the presence of a magnetic field.
