Week #Week 2 August 19th-23rd Lesson Plan
Unit of InstructionApplying place value concepts in whole number addition and subtraction. Introduction to Science
Standard(s) Taught


Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.  For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.


Read and write multi-digit numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.


Explain that science does not always follow a rigidly defined method (“the scientific method”) but that science does involve the use of observations and empirical evidence.


Explain that science focuses solely on the natural world.


Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual observations from ideas and inferences about the observations.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


  • Explain and demonstrate knowledge that when given a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times the amount represented in the place value to the right.
  • Write multi-digit whole numbers through one million in various forms (base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form)
  • Compare two given multi-digit whole numbers and record using the following symbols: <, >, and =.


  • Set up a science notebook used to record data and take notes throughout the school year
  • Define the term science (study of the natural world through observation and evidence).
  • Record observations within the science notebook that we have created using different data collection tools. (e.g., charts and diagrams)
  • Demonstrate an understanding between the difference of observations from inferences and communicate them with others in the classroom.
  • Engage in discussions with others in the classroom to compare/contrast findings and data.
