# Q4W1 (3/20 -3/24)

Teacher Kathleen Manning Math/Science 4 1 Measurement Equivalence/ Plants & Animals
Standard(s) Taught

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
