Standard(s) Taught

MATH: 4.NBT.1.1 1.2 1.3

– 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.
– 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.
– Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.

SCIENCE: 1.5 1.6 1.7 1.8 2.1

– Compare the methods and results of investigations done by other classmates.
– Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual observation from ideas and inferences about the observation.
– Recognize and explain that scientists base their explanations on evidence.
– Recognize that Science involves creativity in designing experiments.
– Explain that Science focuses solely on the natural world.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:
– 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 symbols:
>, <, or =.
– understand that the purpose of rounding to estimate "before an operation" to make mental math easier and to check the reasonableness of an answer.
– use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers (between 1,000 and 1,000,000) to any place.

– engage in a common investigation using metric measurement tools (e.g. beakers, graduated cylinders, rulers, tape measures, thermometers, scales)
– compare methods and results of other classmate's investigations.
-formulate opinions, new ideas, and conclusions based on classmate comparisions.
– seek reasons to explain any differences that may have occurred.
-critique others' work in a written manner to make recommendations of how to improve future investigations.
– distinguish observations from inferences.
-define data and evidence
-explain that scientists base their explanations on data and evidence.
– identify any flaws in the experimental design that may have affected the outcome.
-set up a science notebook that will be used all year.
