|Subject Area||Math and Science|
|Unit of Instruction||Multiplication/ Earth's Features|
– Multiply a whole number of up to 4 digits by a one digit number, and multiply two 2-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
– Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color. Recognize the role of minerals in the formation of rocks.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
The student will:
-Use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or array models to solve and explain multi-digit
– Apply an understanding of rectangular arrays and area models to connect to the partial products strategy.
– Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color.
– Investigate and record the physical properties of minerals using technology and tools when appropriate. (glass plates and tiles)
– Explain that investigations of minerals do not always follow the scientific method but do involve the use of observations and evidence.
– Compare observations made by other classmates explaining any differences in data.
– Compare minerals based on physical properties.
– Explain the role of minerals (clay, quartz, feldspar, calcite, talc, pyrite, graphite, and mica) and their importance in rock formation.
