Unit of InstructionAngles/Food Chains/Florida's Economy and Space Program
Standard(s) Taught

MATH:        MAFS.4.MD.3.6       MD.3.7     4.G.1.1

  • Measure angles in whole number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specific measure.
  • Recognize angle measures as additive- that the whole angle is equal to the sum of its parts.
  • Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse). Identify these in two dimensional figures.

SCIENCE:   SC.4.L.17.2        SC.4.L.17.3

  • 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.
  • Trace the flow of energy from the Sun as it is transferred along the food chain through the producers to the consumers.

SOCIAL STUDIES:  SS.4.A.8.3      4.A.8.4

  • Describe the effect of the United States space program on Florida’s economy and growth.
  • Explain how tourism affects Florida’s economy and growth.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

  • 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 measure 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), and obtuse angles (91-179 degrees).
  • Identify points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (acute, right, obtuse) in two-dimensional shapes.
  • Review that all living things need energy to survive.
  • Explain that plants make their own food 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.
  • Describe that all life on Earth is dependent upon the Sun.
  • Trace the flow of energy from the sun as it is transferred along the food chain through the producers to the consumers (e.g. SUN –> GRASS –> RABBIT –> FOX)
  • Explain that some energy is lost from one organism to the next in the form of heat.
  • Classify consumers as herbivores, carnivores, or omnivores.
  • Describe the relationship between plants as producers and animals as consumers.
  • Discuss the development of the national space program.
  • Identify how the national space program impacts Florida’s economy and population.
  • Identify the major components of Florida’s tourist industry, including cultural sites, eco-tourism, beaches, natural wonders, and amusement parks.
  • Explain how tourism impacts Florida’s economy.
