Subject AreaMath and Science
Grade Level4
Week #5
Unit of InstructionQuadrilaterals/FSA Reviews/Animal Life Cycles
Standard(s) Taught

MATH: MAFS.4.G.1.2
– Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size.
– Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

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 non-flowering seed bearing plants.

**REVIEW of various Math standards from this year.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

-Classify two-dimensional shapes into the following categories: those with parallel lines, those with perpendicular lines, those with both parallel and perpendicular lines, those with no parallel or perpendicular lines.

-Classify two-dimensional shapes into categories based on the presence or absence of acute, obtuse, or right angles.

-Recognize that right triangles form a category of triangles and identify triangles that fit in this category.

– Review that all living things have a life cycle.

– Explore life cycles of various animals living in Florida.

– Describe complete metamorphosis (4 stages) using animals that undergo this change (butterflies, frogs, flies, ants)

– Describe incomplete metamorphosis (3 stages) using animals that undergo this change (grasshoppers, cockroaches, dragonflies).

– Compare/contrast the differences in body structures of the different stages (egg, larva, pupa, adult, nymph).
