Subject AreaMath/Science
Grade Level4
Week #1
Unit of InstructionMeasurement/ Plant Reproduction
Standard(s) Taught

MATH: MAFS.4.MD.1.1
– Know relative sizes of measurement units including: (metric) km,m,cm,kg,g,L,mL and (standard) gallon, quart, pint, cup, ton, pound, ounce, hour, minute, seconds, mile, yard, feet, inches.
– Express measurement of larger units in terms of smaller units (e.g. 1 foot is 12X as long as 1 inch)
– Record measurement equivalents in a 2-column table

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:

– 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 3X as long as 1 foot)

– 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
