# Q4W3 (4/3 – 4/7)

Teacher Kathleen Manning Math/Science 4 3 Perimeter-Area/ Life Cycles of Plants and Animals
Standard(s) Taught

MATH:      MA.4.GR.2.1     MA.4.GR.2.2

• Solve perimeter and area mathematical and real-world problems, including problems with unknown sides, for rectangles with whole-number side lengths.
• Solve problems involving rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or the same area and different perimeters.

SCIENCE:  SC.4. L.16.4

• Compare and contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants and animals, such as those that undergo complete and incomplete metamorphosis, and flowering and nonflowering and seed-bearing plants.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

• Solve for the perimeter and area of a rectangle.
• Write formulas for the perimeter and area of a rectangle.
• Find dimensions of a rectangle for a given perimeter or area.
• Solve problems involving perimeter and area.
• 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).
• Explore life cycles of various animals living in Florida.
• Describe complete metamorphosis (4 stages) using animals that undergo this change (e.g., butterflies, frogs, flies, ants).
• Describe incomplete metamorphosis (3 stages) using animals that undergo this change (e.g., grasshoppers, cockroaches, dragonflies).
• Compare and contrast differences in body structures of the different stages (egg, larva, pupa, adult, nymph).
• Differentiate between the major stages in life cycles of Florida animals including, but not limited to, those that undergo incomplete and complete metamorphosis.
