MATH:                                                                                                                                         MA.4.NSO.2.2       MA.4.AR.1.1       MA.4.NSO.2.3      MA.4.NSO.1.4           MA.4.NSO.2.5   

  • Multiply two whole numbers, up to three digits by up to two digits, with procedural reliability.
  • Solve real world problems involving multiplication and division of whole numbers including problems in which remainders must be interpreted within the context.
  • Multiply two whole numbers, each up to two digits, including using a standard algorithm with procedural fluency.  
  • Round whole numbers from 0 to 10,000 to the nearest 10,100, or 1,000.
  • Explore the multiplication and division of multi-digit whole numbers using estimation, rounding, and place value.  

SCIENCE:       SC.4.E.6.2      SC.4.E.6.4

  • Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals, including hardness, color, luster, cleavage, and streak color; and recognize the role of minerals in the formation of rocks.
  • Describe the basic differences between physical weathering (breaking down of rock by wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants) and erosion (movement of rock by gravity, wind, water, and ice).
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • Use area models and partial products to multiply.
  • Use the Distributive Property to multiply.
  • Use place value to multiply.
  • Multiply three-digit numbers by two-digit numbers.
  • Identify the physical properties of common earth-forming minerals.
  • Investigate and record the physical properties of minerals using technology and tools when appropriate (glass plates, streak plates)
  • Explain that investigations of minerals do not always follow the scientific method but do involve the use of observations and evidence.
  • Compare observations made by classmates explaining any differences in data.
  • Compare minerals based on physical properties.
  • Explain the role of minerals (clay, quartz, feldspar, calcite, talc, pyrite, graphite, and mica) and their importance in rock formation (e.g. 2 or more minerals make up a rock)
  • Observe and record evidence of weathering in nature.
  • Describe causes of physical weathering.
  • Use a model to investigate the processes of physical weathering and erosion.
  • Discuss cause and effect relationships for erosion and weathering.
  • Provide examples of how physical weathering and the erosion processes change Earth’s surface (constructive and destructive).
