Standard(s) Taught

MATH: MAFS.4.G.1.3

– Recognize a line of symmetry for a two dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts.
– Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.

SCIENCE: SC.4.L.16.2

– Explain that although characteristics of plants and animals are inherited, some characteristics can be affected by the environment.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

– Explain line symmetry and identify figures that have line symmetry (e.g. fold a figure or draw a line so it has 2 parts that match exactly.)

– Draw lines of symmetry in both regular and non-regular polygons.

– Explain that some characteristics (traits) of plants are inherited by offspring from parents (e.g., type of plant,
color of flower, 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 some characteristics (traits) of animals are inherited by offspring from parents (e.g., freckles,
height, dimples, eye color).

– Explain that some characteristics (traits) of animals are learned/acquired by the environment (e.g., hair color
and length, playing an instrument, reading).

– Explain that environmental factors such as climate, disease, light, temperature, predator-prey relationships, and
food supply, can affect some characteristics of organisms.
