Unit of InstructionMeasurement/Plants&Animals
Standard(s) Taught

MATH: 4.MD.1.1 4.MD.1.2 4.MD.1.3 (measurement)
4.OA.3.5 (patterns)

– Know relative sizes of measurement units: km, m, cm, m, kg, g, lb., oz., L, mL, hr., min., sec.
– Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit.
– Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table.
– Express length in different measurements (i.e. a 4 ft snake is 48 inches)
– Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs.
– Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, and money.
– Represent fractional quantities of distance and intervals of time using linear models.
– Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.
– Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule.

SCIENCE: SC.4.L.16.1 SC.4.L.16.4 (this week we are doing plants)
– Identify processes of sexual reproduction in flowering plants, including pollination, fertilization (seed production), seed dispersal, and germination.
– Compare and contrast the major stages in life cycles of Florida plants and animals, such as flowering and nonflowering seed bearing plants, and animals that undergo complete and incomplete metamorphosis.

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 two-column tables (function tables) showing measure equivalents and relate measurement conversions to multiplicative comparisons.
– Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, and money.
– Apply the perimeter formula in real-world and mathematical situations.
– Apply the area formula in real-world and mathematical situations.
– Solve for missing dimensions of rectangles when provided with the perimeter and/or area.
– Solve problems involving area of a composite figure composed of rectangles.
-Generate a number pattern that follows a given one or two-step rule.
– Identify features in number or shape patterns after following a given one or two-step rule.
– 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
– Review that all living things have a life cycle.
– Review the ways plants can reproduce – flowering and non-flowering (with cones and spores)
– Explore life cycles of various plants found in Florida (e.g., orange tree, pine tree, hibiscus).
– Diagram the major stages in the life cycles of plants (seed  seedling  mature plant  flower or cone).
– Compare the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants, both flowering and nonflowering seed-bearing plants (e.g., daisies and pine trees).
