|Unit of Instruction||Symmetry/Decimals/Animal Life Cycles|
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• explain line symmetry and identify figures that have line symmetry (e.g., fold a figure or draw a line so it has two parts that match exactly).
• draw lines of symmetry in both regular and non-regular polygons.
• demonstrate place value of decimals through the hundredths using concrete materials (e.g., decimal grids, base ten blocks, number lines).
• explain that decimals can only be compared when they refer to the same size wholes.
• compare decimals with and without models (such as decimal grids, money, or base ten blocks) and record the comparison numerically using symbols: <, > or =.
• justify the comparison by reasoning about the size of the decimal.
• explore life cycles of various animals living in Florida.
• describe complete metamorphosis (4 stages) using animals that undergo this change (e.g., butterflies, frogs, flies, ants).
• describe incomplete metamorphosis (3 stages) using animals that undergo this change (e.g., grasshoppers, cockroaches, dragonflies).
• compare and contrast differences in body structures of the different stages (egg, larva, pupa, adult, nymph).
• differentiate between the major stages in life cycles of Florida animals including, but not limited to, those that undergo incomplete and complete metamorphosis.
