Standard(s) Taught

MATH:        NBT.2.6     O.A. 1.1   O.A.1.2   O.A.1.3    1.a    1.b

  • Use strategies and properties to divide by one-digit numbers.
  • Use operations with whole numbers to solve problems.

SCIENCE:   4.E.6.3    4.E.6.6  4.P.8.1    4.P.8.4    4.P.8.2    

  • Recognize that humans need resources found on Earth and that these are either renewable or nonrenewable.
  • Identify resources available in Florida (water, phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon, wind, and solar energy)
  • Measure and compare objects and materials based on their physical properties including: mass, shape, volume, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, and magnetism.
  • Investigate and describe that magnets can attract magnetic materials and attract and repel other magnets.
  • Identify properties and common uses of water in each of its states.
  • Explore the Law of Conservation of Mass by demonstrating that the mass of a whole object is always the same as the sum of the masses of its parts.
  • Identify some familiar changes in materials that result in other materials with different characteristics such as: decaying animal or plant matter, burning, rusting, or cooking.

SOCIAL STUDIES:  4.A.2.1   4.A.1.1   4.A.1.2    4.G.1.2    4.A.3.4

  • Compare Native American Tribes in Florida
  • Analyze primary and secondary resources to identify significant individuals and events throughout Florida history.
  • Synthesize information related to Florida history through print and electronic media.
  • Locate and label cultural features on a Florida map.
  • Explain the purposes of and daily life on missions.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The students will:

  • 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 4 digits) by a one-digit divisor.
  • Interpret a basic multiplication equation as a comparison ( if a=n X b, then a is n times as much as b).
  • Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparison as multiplication equations.
  • Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
  • Define resources as anything from the environment that meets our needs and wants.
  • Provide examples of renewable resources (water, wind, solar, trees) and nonrenewable resources (rocks, minerals, soil, coal, oil, natural gas).
  • Explain that nonrenewable resources exist in a fixed quantity on Earth and may be used up.
  • Identify natural resources available in Florida (water, phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon, wind, and solar energy).
  • Distinguish Florida’s renewable natural resources: water, wind, solar, trees / and nonrenewable resources: phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon.
  • Compare objects based on observable and measureable physical properties: shape, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, mass, volume, temperature, magnetism.
  • Investigate and explain that all matter has the following measureable properties: volume (takes up space) and mass (weight).
  • Know distinguishing characteristics of each Florida Native American Tribe and where each lived.
  • Explain what a mission was and what it was built for.
