MATH: MA.4.1.3 MA.4.1.4
- Identify and generate equivalent fractions, including fractions greater than one. Describe how the numerator and denominator are affected when the equivalent fraction is created.
- Plot, order, and compare fractions, including mixed numbers and fractions greater than one, with different numerators and different denominators.
SCIENCE: SC.4. P. 10.1 SC.4. P.10.2
- Observe and describe some basic forms of energy including light, heat, sound, electrical, and energy of motion (mechanical).
- Investigate and describe that energy has the ability to cause motion or create change.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
The student will:
- Draw a model of equivalent fractions
- Use multiplication and division to find equivalent fractions
- Compare two fractions using benchmarks
- Compare fractions that have the same numerators or the same denominators
- Review how light travels in a straight path until interrupted by an object.
- Review how light passes through other objects (transparent, translucent, opaque).
- Review how light reflects, bends, or absorbs.
- Identify these forms of energy in their life and in the natural world.
- Compare and contrast these types of energy
- Investigate and describe how energy can cause motion (e.g., moving water can turn a water wheel to make hydropower, wind can move sand across the beach or sail a model boat, solar energy can power a model car).
- Investigate and describe how energy can create change in matter (e.g., heat energy can melt ice, moving water can make rocks smooth, light can keep food warm).
- Explain the relationship between energy and motion.
