# Q1W8 (10/4 – 10/8) Teacher Kathleen Manning Math and Science 4 8 Multiplication/ Earth's Features
Standard(s) Taught

MATH: MAFS.4.NBT.2.5
– Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations.
– Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

SCIENCE: SC.4.E.6.1
– Identify the three categories of rocks:
1) Igneous- formed from molten rock
2) Sedimentary – pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms
3) Metamorphic – formed from heat and pressure

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The students will:

– Use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or array 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.

– Use technology and tools to study and investigate samples of rocks.

– Observe and identify examples for each of the three categories of rocks (igneous, sedimentary, and
metamorphic).

– Construct models for each of the three categories of rocks to include major details.

– Explain, pictorially and in words, the different ways rocks are formed.

– Describe how each category of rock is formed.

– Differentiate between the three different categories of rocks based on how each is formed and/or their
physical properties.
