MATH: MAFS.4.MD.3.5 MAFS.4.MD.3.5 MAFS.4.MD.3.7 MAFS.4.G.1.1

– Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint.

-Measure angles in whole number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.

– Recognize angle measure as additive.

-Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, right angles (right, acute, obtuse), perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these lines in two-dimensional figures.

SCIENCE: SC.4.L.16.4-

-Compare/Contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants (& animals), such as those that undergo incomplete and complete metamorphosis, and flowering/non-flowering seed-bearing plants. (orange tree, pine tree, hibiscus).

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

-Recognize an angle as a geometric shape that is formed when two rays share a common endpoint.
– Explain the relationship between a circle and and the number of degrees in an 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 sketch an angle given a specific measurement.
– Recognize angle measurement as additive, explaining that the angle measurement of a larger angle is the sum of the angle measures of its decomposed parts.
– Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems.
– Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, right angles (exactly 90 degrees), acute angles (less than 90 degrees), obtuse angles (more than 90 degrees and less than 180 degrees).
– Explain that some characteristics (traits) of plants are inherited by offspring from parents (e.g. type of plant, color of flowers, leaf shape, size).
– Explain that some characteristics (traits) of plants are affected by the environment in both positive and negative ways (e.g. fires, humans, pollution).
– Explain that environmental factors such as climate, disease, light, temperature, predator-prey relationships, and food supply, can affect some characteristics of organisms.
