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

MATH:    MAFS.4   NBT.1.1   NBT.1.2   NBT.1.3  NBT.2.4

  • Review place value understanding to compare and round numbers.
  • Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

SCIENCE:   SC.4    N.3.1    E.5.1   E.5.3   E.5.4    E.6.5     

  • 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.
  • Explain that models can be 3-dimensional, 2-dimensional, an explanation in the mind, or a computer model.
  • Investigate how technology and tools help to extend the ability of humans to observe very small things and very large things.
  • 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.

  • Identify the physical features of Florida
  • Locate and label cultural features on a Florida map.
  • Describe how the Florida constitution protects the rights of citizens and provides for the structure, function, and purposes of state government.
  • Identify the three branches of government and the powers of each.
  • Distinguish between state (governor, state representative, senator) and local (mayor, city commissioner) government.
  • Discuss public issues in Florida that impact the daily lives of its citizens.
  • Identify ways citizens work together to influence government and help solve community and state problems.
  • Explain the importance of public service, voting, and volunteerism.






Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The students will:


  1. Read and write multi-digit numbers through one million in base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
  2. Compare two multi-digit numbers to one million using place value and record the comparison numerically using the symbols >, <, or =.
  3. Understand that the purpose of rounding to estimate before adding or subtracting is to make mental math easier and to check the reasonableness of an answer.
  4. Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers (between 1,000 and 1,000,000) to any place.
  5. 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.
  6. Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.


  1. Use a model to demonstrate the difference between Earth’s rotation and Earth’s revolution.
  2. Explain that Earth revolves (orbits) around the sun once in a year. (365 days)
  3. Explain that Earth rotates on its axis in approximately a 24 hour period (day and night).
  4. Review that the sun is the closest star to Earth.
  5. Explain that the Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the sun and stars to appear as though they are moving across the sky.
  6. Discuss types of investigations in which a webcam, telescope, microscope, or hand lens might be used.


  1. Identify and locate Florida’s major physical features, including major bodies of water and areas with major islands such as the Florida Keys, on a state map.
  2. Locate, label, and discuss Florida’s cultural features on a Florida map (state capital, major cities, sites of important historical events, major tourist attractions).
  3. Sumarize ways citizens can influence government or public policy.
  4. Identify community and state problems.
  5. Describe the branches of government and how they apply to Florida government.
