Q4W7 (5/17 – 5/21)
Weekly-Assignments May 17 – 21
|Subject Area||Math and Science|
|Unit of Instruction||Problem Solving/Living Things and the Environment|
MATH: OA.1.2 OA.1.3
– Multiply or Divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison.
– Solve multi-step word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
SCIENCE: SC.4.L.17.1 SC.4.L.17.2
– Compare the seasonal changes in Florida plants and animals to those in other regions of the country.
– Explain that animals, including humans, cannot make their own food and that when animals eat plants or other animals, the energy stored in the food source is passed to them.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
The student will:
– Distinguish multiplicative comparisons (e.g. Tonya has 3 times as many cousins as Matthew) from additive comparisons (e.g. Tonya has 3 more cousins than Matthew).
– Solve word problems involving multiplicative comparisons.
– Solve multi-step word problems (up to 3 steps) that involve multiplication and/or division using strategies for grade 4 level.
– Represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
– Interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
– Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies including rounding.
– Review how plants respond to different stimuli (heat, light, and gravity)
– Compare ecosystems in Florida to ones found in other regions of the country (e.g. deciduous forest, ocean, grassland, wetland).
– Discuss environmental and biological triggers that initiate an organism’s response to seasonal change both in Florida and in different regions of the country (e.g. temperature, precipitation, dormancy, molting, breeding, camouflaging).
– Differentiate the seasonal changes of Florida plants to those in other regions of the country. (e.g. dormancy, leaves changing color, flowering seasons).
– Differentiate the seasonal changes of Florida animals to those in other regions of the country.(e.g. color changes, body covering changes, hibernation, migration, camouflage).
– Review that all living things need energy to survive.
– Explain that plants make their own food (photosynthesis) and are called producers.
– Explain that animals, including humans, cannot make their own food and are called consumers.
– Explain that when animals eat plants or other animals, the energy stored in the food source is passed to them.
