Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


Students will:

• solve multi-step word problems (i.e., up to 3 steps) that involve the four operations using strategies for this grade level (e.g, rectangular arrays, area models, properties of operations, standard algorithm for addition and subtraction, etc.).

• represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.

• interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.

• assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation prior to calculation. 

• apply an understanding of addition and subtraction, place value, and flexibility with multiple strategies to use the standard algorithms for addition and subtraction. 


Students will:

• review how things that give off light often give off heat.

• review how heat is produced when two objects rub against each other.

• investigate heat energy by measuring temperature changes in a liquid.

• compare observations with classmates explaining any differences that occur.

• collect and record temperature readings during investigations in charts, tables, and graphs.

• investigate which materials are the best conductors of heat (e.g., clay, metal, and glass).

• investigate which materials are non-conductors/insulators of heat (e.g., plastic, wood, Styrofoam).

• make inferences about observations made during conductivity investigations.

• form conclusions about which materials conduct heat well or poorly based on investigations.
