MATH:   MA.4. M.1.1     MA.4. M.1.2     MA.4. M.2.1

  • Select and use appropriate tools to measure attributes of objects.
  • Convert within a single system of measurement using the units: yards, feet, inches; kilometers, meters, centimeters, millimeters; pounds, ounces; kilograms, grams; gallons, quarts, pints, cups; liter, milliliter; hours, minutes, seconds.
  • Solve two-step real world problems involving distances and intervals of time using any combination of the four operations.

SCIENCE:   SC.4. L.16.1

  • Identify processes of sexual reproduction in flowering plants, including pollination, fertilization (seed production), seed dispersal, and germination.


Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

  • Write lengths using equivalent metric measures.
  • Compare sizes of metric units of length.
  • Write metric lengths using smaller and larger metric units.
  • Make tables of equivalent metric lengths.
  • Write masses and capacities using equivalent metric measures.
  • Compare sizes of metric units of mass and capacity.
  • Write metric masses and capacities using smaller metric units.
  • Make tables of equivalent metric measures.
  • Write lengths using equivalent customary measures.
  • Compare sizes of customary units of length.
  • Write customary lengths using smaller and larger customary units.
  • Make tables of equivalent customary lengths.
  • Identify the reproductive structures of a flower and their functions:
  • stamen (male parts) – makes pollen
  • pistil (female parts) – produces ovules
  • sperm/egg – join during fertilization to become a seed
  • ovary – becomes a fruit
  • petal – attracts pollinators
  • Identify and describe processes of reproduction (sexual) in flowering plants:
  • pollination – the transfer of pollen from the male parts (stamens) to the female parts (pistils) of a flower
  • fertilization (seed production) – the joining of an egg cell and a sperm cell
  • seed dispersal – the transport of seed from one location to another
  • germination – the sprouting of a plant from a seed
