Q1W3 (8/30 – 9/3)
|Subject Area||Math and Science|
|Unit of Instruction||Generalize Place Value/ Earth's Patterns and Space|
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. 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 >, =, and < symbols to
record the results of comparisons.
– Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
SCIENCE: SC.4.E.5.2 5.3
– Recognize that Earth revolves around the Sun in a year and rotates on its axis in a 24 hour day.
– Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of a month.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
The students 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
following 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.
– Use a model to demonstrate the difference between Earth’s rotation and Earth’s revolution.
– Explain that Earth rotates once on its axis in approximately a 24 hour period (day and night).
– Explain that Earth revolves (orbits) around the sun once in a year (approx. 365 days).
– Recognize that the moon does not produce its own light; but it reflects light from the sun.
– Recognize that the moon revolves around (orbits) Earth in about 28 days as Earth revolves around (orbits) the sun.
– Describe the changes (patterns) that occur to the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month that
have been recorded in a science notebook.
– Predict the changes in the observable shape of the moon starting at any point in the cycle.
– Sequence moon patterns.
– Compare observable shapes of the moon.
– Explain that the moon’s physical shape does not actually change.
– Explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the moon to appear as though it is moving across the day or night
