Standard(s) Taught

MATH:  4.NBT.2.6

  • Use strategies and properties to divide by 1-digit numbers

SCIENCE:  SC.4.E.6.4    SC.4.E.6.3     SC.4.E.6.6

  • 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).
  • Recognize that humans need resources found on Earth and that these are either renewable or nonrenewable.
  • Identify sources available in Florida (water, phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon, wind, and solar energy).


  • Compare Native American Tribes in Florida.


Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:

  • Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors.
  • Use strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division.
  • Illustrate and explain calculations using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
  • Use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or area models to solve and explain division problems that involve the division of a multi-digit dividend (up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor.
  • Apply an understanding of rectangular arrays and area models to connect to the partial quotients strategy.
  • Observe and record evidence of physical weathering in nature.
  • Describe causes of physical weathering: wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants.
  • Investigate the processes of physical weathering using a model.
  • Observe and record evidence of erosion.
  • Describe causes of erosion: gravity, wind, water, ice.
  • Discuss the cause/effect relationships for erosion and weathering.
  • Provide examples of how physical weathering and the erosion processes change the Earth’s surface (constructive and destructive).
  • Define resources as anything from the environment that meets our needs and wants.
  • Provide examples of renewable resources (water, wind, solar, trees).
  • Provide examples of nonrenewable resources (rocks, minerals, soil, fossil fuels).
  • Identify renewable and nonrenewable resources found on Earth that human need and how they are used.
  • Distinguish between renewable and nonrenewable resources found on Earth.
  • Explain that nonrenewable resources exist inn a fixed quantity on Earth and may be used up.
