    ELA:

    Module 3: The American Revolution

    Unit Summary: In this unit, students will read informational text about the American Revolution and build background knowledge that will help them in later constructing an opinion/argument on the topic – to be a Loyalist or Patriot.  This unit will engage students in a variety of close reading tasks to build comprehension.

    Unit Tasks:

    • Students apply what they have learned about reading and analyzing informational texts to answer selected response questions about the main idea and overall structure of a new informational text. They then summarize the text.
    • Two parts: In Part I, students write a short first-person narrative explaining in detail what a character from Divided Loyalties is thinking and feeling at a specific point in a scene. In Part II, students answer selected responses and short answer questions about literary texts.
    • Two parts: ​​In Part I, students demonstrate what they have learned about writing an opinion piece by drafting a broadside from the Loyalist perspective. In Part II, students apply what they have learned about linking words, prepositional phrases, and frequently confused words to revise and edit the broadside. 

     

    Eureka Math:

    Module 7: Exploring Measurement with Multiplication 

    Students will…

    • 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.
