– Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule.
– Compare and contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida animals, such as those that undergo incomplete and complete metamorphosis.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
The student will:
– 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.
– Recognize an angle as a geometric shape that is formed when two rays share a common endpoint.
– Explain the relationship between a circle and the number of degrees in an angle (i.e., an angle is measured in reference to
– Explain an angle as a series of “one-degree turns” and the total number of “one-degree turns” is the measure of the angle
– Explain that since it takes 360 “one-degree turns” to rotate through a circle, 1/360
– Measure an angle to the nearest whole number degrees using a protractor.
– Use a protractor to draw an angle of a given measurement.
– Review that all living things have a life cycle.
– Explore the life cycles of various animals living in Florida.
– Describe complete metamorphosis (3 stages) using animals that undergo this change (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.
