MAFS.4   NBT.1.1  NBT.1.2

  • 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.
  • Apply concepts of place value with multiplication and division by 10.
  • Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. 
  • Compare two multi-digit numbers based on values of the digits in each place, using <, =, or > symbols to record the results of comparisons.

SC.4.  N.1.3   N.1.6    N.2.1

  • Set up Science Interactive Lab Book
  • Explore various fields of science realizing that not all scientists follow the scientific method for experimental investigations.
  • Explain the role of a scientist. (ask questions and find answers based on evidence)
  • Explain that science involves the use of observations and evidence.
  • Define science (study of the natural world through observation and evidence)
  • Record observations of an object and/or an event in a science notebook using a variety of data.
  • Define data and evidence
  • Distinguish between observations and inferences
  • Communicate observations and inferences with others in the classroom.
  • Critique each other’s findings through meaningful discussion.

SS.4.  G.1.4    G.1.1   G.1.2

  • Interpret political and physical maps using map elements (title, compass rose, cardinal directions, intermediate directions, symbols, legend, scale, longitude, latitude.
  • Identify physical features of Florida.
  • Locate and label cultural features on a Florida map.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will…..


  1. 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.
  2. Explain that a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
  3. Read and write multi-digit numbers through one million in base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
  4. Compare two multi-digit numbers to 1,000,000 using place value and record the comparison numerically using the symbols < , = , or >. 


  1. Finish setting up Science Interactive Notebook
  2. Review ideas of: What is a scientist? What is science? 
  3. Make inferences based on observations.
  4. Describe the differences between observations and inferences.
  5. Engage in meaningful discussions about science observations and inferences.


  1. Identify map elements such as title, compass rose, symbols, legend, scale, longitude, and latitude.
  2. Indicate cardinal directions and intermediate directions on a map.
  3. Interpret information on political and physical maps to explain locations and distances.
  4. Compare locations of two places using map elements.
  5. Identify and locate Florida’s major physical features, including major bodies of water and areas with major islands (such as Florida Keys) on a state map.
  6. Locate, label, and discuss Florida’s cultural features on a Florida map (e.g. state capital, major cities, sites of important historical events, major tourist attractions).
