 • January: What is Grade Four studying?

ELA:

Unit of Study: Colonial & Revolutionary Periods

In this unit, students will explore colonial perspectives on the Revolutionary War. Students will read and analyze short informational texts and primary source documents to build background knowledge about the American Revolution and the reasons colonists became either Patriots who fought for independence, or Loyalists who fought to remain a part of Great Britain.

Essential Question:

How does a person’s perspective influence her or his opinion?

What happens when people have a difference of opinion?

Big Idea:

We should respect the opinion of others.

Resources:

George Washington’s Socks by Elvira Woodruff

Writing:

Narrative Writing: Students will be able to choose a seed from their Writer's Notebook take through the writing process to create a narrative.

Informational Writing

Students will write about an important even during the American Revolution.

• Students will explore the writing process by recognizing and understanding the five steps. (Prewriting, Drafting, Revising, Editing, and Publishing)

Eureka Math:

Module 3: Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division

Students will...

• solve multiplicative comparison word problems
• multiply by multiples of 10, 100, and 1,000
• multiply three- and four- digit numbers
• solve multiplication and division word problems
• understand and solve two-digit dividend division problems
• explain remainders

Module 4: Angle Measure and Plane Figures

Students will…

• identify and draw points, lines, line segments, rays, and angles.
• use varied protractors to distinguish angle measure from length measurement
• recognize lines of symmetry
• analyze and classify triangles and quadrilaterals

Common Core Learning Standards:

4.MD.C.3 - Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.

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.OA.B.4 - Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is prime or composite.

4.NBT.B.5 - Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

4.NBT.B.6 - Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

4.MD.C.5 - Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement:

4.MD.C.6 - Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.

4.MD.C.7 - Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.

4.G.A.1 - Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

4.G.A.2 - Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

4.G.3 - Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
