  • Find equivalence in units of customary measure.

SCIENCE:        SC.4.L.16.4         SC.4.L.16.1

  • Compare and contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants, such as those that are flowering and non-flowering.

  • Describe the economic development of Florida’s major industries.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

  • know relative size of measurement units within one system.
  •  convert larger units of measure into smaller equivalent units
  •  complete a two-column table (function table) showing measurement equivalents and relate measurement conversions to multiplicative comparisons (e.g., 1 yard is 3 times as long as 1 foot). 
  • use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances (i.e., inch, feet, yard, mile; millimeter, centimeter, meter, kilometer), including simple fractions or decimals and represent fractional quantities of distance using linear models.
  • use the four operations to solve word problems involving intervals of time including simple fractions and represent these intervals of time using linear models.
  • Review that all living things have a life cycle.
  • Review the way plants can reproduce: flowering and non-flowering, or with cones and spores.
  • Explore the life cycles of various plants found in Florida (e.g. orange , pine tree, hibiscus).
  • Diagram the major life stages in the life cycle of plants (seed > seedling > mature plant > flower or cone.
  • Compare the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants, both flowering and non-flowering seed bearing plants (e.g. daisies and pine trees).
  • Describe the causes of the Spanish-American War and the effect it had on Florida.
  • Provide an explanation of events in a historical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information from the text.
  • Describe what led to the boom in Florida’s economy from 1866-1900.
