Q1W6 (10/5 – 10/9)

weekly assignments October 5

TeacherKathleen Manning
Subject AreaMath and Science
Grade Level4
Week #6
Unit of InstructionFactors and Multiples/ Earth's Patterns and Space
Standard(s) Taught

Math: MAFS.4.OA.2.4
– Investigate Factors and Multiples

Science: SC.4.E.5.1 5.2 5.5
– 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.
– Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of one month.
– Investigate and report the effects of space research on the economy and culture of Florida.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:
– Determine factor pairs of whole numbers in the range of 1-100.
– Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors.
– Determine whether a given whole number in the range of 1-100 is a multiple of a given one digit number.
– Determine if a number in the range of 1-100 is prime or composite.
– Read and discuss how the effects of space research and exploration has created advances in science that have impacted the economy and culture of Florida (e.g., medical technology, transportation, agriculture, and industrial productivity).
– 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.
-Explain that the moon’s physical shape does not actually change.
– Demonstrate that the star patterns (constellations) in the sky appear to shift across the sky nightly due to Earth’s rotation.
-Discuss how different star patterns are high in the night sky in some seasons but dip below the horizon in other seasons (e.g., use models/ simulations of winter and summer skyline).

Classroom Activities

For Math we will be using Book #1 for Chapter 3, Lesson 7 “Factors and Multiples”(pp.173-178) and also Book #2 for Chapter 8, Lessons 1 and 2 (pp.485-498). All of these chapters focus on Factors and Multiples.

Using manipulatives: rectangular arrays pp. 175-176 together in class
pp. 485-486, 488 practice together and discuss problem solving

pp. 491-4 together in class
use manipulatives to discover prime numbers
Identify prime numbers on number chart

We have 2 more weeks of Earth’s Patterns and Space. Students will have one more project to do on Constellations.
– Finish up project presentations
– Continue Moon Phases chart
– Discovery Education lessons
– Introduction to Constellations (ppt)
