    Module: Fossils Tell of Earth’s Changes

    Guiding Questions:  What do paleontologists do? 

                                        What can we learn from studying fossils?


    Unit Summary:  In this module, students build their literacy and science skills as they engage in a study of fossils. Students are gradually introduced to close reading strategies as they read a few different nonfiction articles on fossils, such as how fossils can teach us about changes that have happened on Earth. 

    Unit Goals:  

    • Answering questions using text evidence.
    • Understanding character.
    • Retell story events


    Eureka Math:

    Module 7: Problem Solving with Length, Money, and Data 

      • Problem solving with data
      • Problem solving with coins and bills
      • Measuring and estimating length using customary and metric units 
      • Problem solving with customary and metric units 
      • Displaying measurement data 

    Module 8: Time, Shapes, and Fractions as Equal Parts of Shapes 

      • Attributes of geometric shapes 
      • Composite shapes and fraction concepts 
      • Halves, thirds, and fourths of circles and rectangles 
      • Application of fractions to tell time 


    Common Core Learning Standards:

    2.NBT.B.5 - Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.

    2.MD.A.1 - Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.

    2.MD.A.2 - Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.

    2.MD.A.3 - Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.

    2.MD.A.4 - Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.

    2.MD.B.5 - Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

    2.MD.B.6 - Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2, ..., and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number line diagram.

    2.MD.C.8 - Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately. Example: If you have 2 dimes and 3 pennies, how many cents do you have?

    2.MD.D.9 - Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.

    2.MD.D.10 - Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.

    2.MD.C.7 - Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.

    2.G.A.1 - Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

    2.G.A.3 - Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
