May & June: What is Grade Four studying?
Module 1: The American Revolution
Guiding Questions: How did the American Revolution and the events leading up to it affect the people in the colonies?
How does a person's perspective influence her or his opinion?
Unit Summary: How does one's perspective influence his or her opinion? In this module, students consider the answer to this question through the lens of the American Revolution. Students will build background knowledge about the Revolutionary War and the different perspectives of colonists. They will read informational texts about groups within the Loyalists and Patriots.
- Determine the main idea
- Analyze structure of a text
- Determine perspective based on character thoughts and actions
Module 7: Exploring Measurement with Multiplication
- Measurement conversion tables
- Problem solving with measurement
- Investigation of measurements expressed as mixed numbers
Common Core Learning Standards:
4.OA.A.1 - Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
4.OA.A.2 - Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
4.OA.A.3 - Solve multistep 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 the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
4.MD.A.1 - Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ...
4.MD.A.2 - Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
