Standard(s) Taught

MATH: 4.NBT.2.5
Use strategies and properties to multiply by 1 digit and 2 digit numbers.

SCIENCE: SC.4.E.5.2 4.E.5.1
Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of about 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:

– Use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or models to solve and explain multi-digit multiplication problems.
– Apply an understanding of rectangular arrays and area models to connect to the partial products strategy.
– Compare the observable shapes of the moon.
– Demonstrate that the star patterns (constellations) in the sky appear to shift across the sky nightly due to the 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 (compare winter vs summer skyline).
