Unit of InstructionAdd/Subtract Multi-Digit Numbers; Earth's Patterns and Space
Standard(s) Taught

4. NBT. 2.4
– Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

SC.4.E.5.1 5.2 5.3 5.4 5.5
– Recognize that Earth revolves around the Sun in a year and rotates on its axis in a 24 hour day.
– Relate that the rotation of Earth (day and night) and apparent movements of the sun, moon, and stars are connected.
– Investigate and report the effects of space research and exploration on the economy and culture of Florida.
– Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of a month.
– Observe that the patterns of stars in the sky stay the same although they appear to shift across the sky nightly, and different stars can be seen in different seasons.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The Student will:
– Apply an understanding of addition and subtraction, place value, and flexibility with multiple strategies to use the standard algorithms for addition and subtraction of whole numbers.
– Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm by the end of Grade 4.
(**Computational fluency is defined as accuracy, efficiency, and flexibility.)
– Review that the Sun is the closest star to Earth.
– Recognize that the moon does not produce its own light, but reflects light from the Sun.
– Recognize that the moon revolves around (orbits) Earth in about 28 days as Earth revolves (orbits) around the Sun.
– Describe the changes (patterns) that occur to the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month. Record on a lab sheet.
– Predict the changes in the observable shape of the moon starting at any point in the cycle. (We will begin on September 17th the day of the next NEW MOON.)
– Sequence moon patterns.
– Explain that the moon’s physical shape doesn’t actually change.
– Explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the moon to appear as though it moves across the sky in the day or night sky.
