# Q4W3 (4/4 – 4/8)

Teacher Kathleen Manning Math/Science 4 3 Measurement/Patterns/Florida Plant Life Cycles
Standard(s) Taught

MATH: MAFS.4.MD.1.3 MAFS.4.OA.3.5

– Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in the real world and mathematical problems.
– Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule.

SCIENCE: SC.4.L.16.4

-Compare and contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants such as the longleaf pine, orange tree, and hibiscus.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

– Apply the perimeter formula (P = 2l + 2w) in real world and mathematical situations.
– Apply the area formula (A = l × w) 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.
– 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).
