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

– Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule.
– Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint and understand concepts of angle measurement.

SCIENCE: SC.4.L.16.4

– 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
a circle—its center is the endpoint for each of the rays that make up the angle).

– Explain an angle as a series of “one-degree turns” and the total number of “one-degree turns” is the measure of the angle
in degrees (°).

– Explain that since it takes 360 “one-degree turns” to rotate through a circle, 1/360
of a circle is a “one-degree angle”.

– 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.
