Subject AreaMath/Science
Grade Level4
Week #1
Unit of InstructionAngles/Place Value/Introduction to Science
Standard(s) Taught

MATH:   MAFS.4.G.1.1       4.NBT. 1.1        4.NBT.1.2

  • Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures. 
  • 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 whole 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 the symbols: > < or = to record the results of comparisons.

SCIENCE:    SC.4.N.1.1    SC.4.N.1.3     SC.4.N.2.1

  • Raise questions about the natural world, use appropriate reference materials that support understanding to obtain information (identifying the source), conduct both individual and team investigations through free exploration and systematic investigations and generate appropriate explanations base on those explorations.
  • 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.
  • Recognize that Science involves creativity in designing experiments.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

THE  STUDENTS WILL:

MATH:

  • Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, right angles (exactly 90°), acute angles (less than 90°), obtuse angles (greater than 90 degrees and less than 180°).
  • Identify points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse) in two-dimensional shapes.
  • Draw perpendicular and parallel lines
  • Identify angles (right, acute, obtuse) perpendicular and parallel lines in two-dimensional shapes.
    **Students should make geometric distinctions about angles without measuring or mentioning degrees. Angles should be classified in comparison to right angles, such as greater than a right angle (obtuse) or less than a right angle (acute).
  • Demonstrate with models that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
  • Explain that a digit in one place is worth ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
  • Read and write multi-digit numbers through 1,000,000 in base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
  • Compare two multi-digit numbers to 1.000,000 using place value and record the comparison numerically using the following symbols: > < or =
    **Special attention will be focused on numbers between 1,000 and 1,000,000 in grade 4.

SCIENCE:

  • Make inferences based on observations.
  • Distinguish observations from inferences.
  • Communicate observations and inferences with others in the classroom.
  • Critique each other’s findings through discussions.
  • Record observations of an object and/or event in a Science notebook using a variety of data collection tools (e.g. diagrams, charts, graphs).
  • Generate a student-driven list of testable questions about the world that can be answered through observation and investigation.-
  • Research topics related to the questions they generate (e.g. internet, leveled readers, non-fiction resources, newspaper, etc.) based on research.
  • Investigate student-generated questions individually or in teams, through free exploration, experimentation (scientific method), or other types of investigations using appropriate science tools.
  • Form conclusions based on data obtained during investigations.
  • Identify any flaws in the experimental design that may have affected the outcome.
Classroom Activities
  • Geometry Activities/ Definitions
  • Chapter 1, Lesson 1 and 2 in My Math –  Place Value
  • Set up Math Number Talks Lab Book
  • Set up Science Lab Book
  • “What is Science?” power point
  • Science Matching Game-Vocabulary
  • Types of Science
  • Activity:  Observation vs Inference

  • IXL (4th grade Math):  Section Y1, Section V3, 4, 5  (these review Geometry concepts learned)                                        Section A1,2,3  (these review introduction to place value this week)

 

Assignments Due
  • Students will be keeping assignments and important notes in their planners this year. Please check them regularly with a signature. 
  • Assignments will be done in class. If students do not finish, they will be asked to take the work home to finish and bring back the next day.
