Fourth Grade

Fourth Grade Science Curriculum Content Timeline (Public Access)

School Year 2018 - 2019

Teacher Access is provided through the Learning Maps

Some weeks will include two different topics depending on number of days assigned. This template is to be used as a rough gauge for pacing.  

The intention of the Learning Map is to provide a consistent scope and sequence for the course across the district.  While the instruction and resources will be based on the needs of the students, the expectation is that every student enrolled in the course will learn the benchmarks in each unit.  While benchmarks are discretely displayed, it is expected that overlap will occur.

Review 4th Grade Standards

Assessed in 5th Grade

 


Revised June 5, 2018

Interdisciplinary Connections

In addition to the science content benchmarks listed, English Language Development, Literacy, and Mathematics standards are to be purposefully integrated and assessed continually throughout the progression of the course.  These standards reinforce the skills that our students require for the constructive acquisition of science content in the classroom as well as the successful navigation of science issues in society. Collaborative discussion, integration of multiple sources of media, and support of claims with evidence are but a few skills emphasized by the standards.

 

English Language Development Standards: Please see the Florida ELD Performance Definitions and Descriptors for Science for remarks and clarifications (http://www.cpalms.org/uploads/docs/standards/eld/SC.pdf).

ELD.K12.ELL.SC.1:

English language learners communicate information, ideas and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of Science.

ELD.K12.ELL.SI.1:

English language learners communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting.

 

Literacy Standards

LAFS.4.RI.1.3:

Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.

LAFS.4.RI.2.4:

Determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words or phrases in a text relevant to a grade 4 topic or subject area.

LAFS.4.RI.4.10:

By the end of year, read and comprehend informational texts, including history/social studies, science, and technical texts, in the grades 4–5 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range.

LAFS.4.SL.1.1:

Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 4 topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.

  1. Come to discussions prepared, having read or studied required material; explicitly draw on that preparation and other information known about the topic to explore ideas under discussion.
  2. Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions and carry out assigned roles.
  3. Pose and respond to specific questions to clarify or follow up on information, and make comments that contribute to the discussion and link to the remarks of others.
  4. Review the key ideas expressed and explain their own ideas and understanding in light of the discussion.

LAFS.4.W.3.8:

Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; take notes and categorize information, and provide a list of sources.

LAFS.4.W.3.9:

Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

  1. Apply grade 4 Reading standards to literature (e.g., “Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text [e.g., a character’s thoughts, words, or actions].”).
  2. Apply grade 4 Reading standards to informational texts (e.g., “Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text”).

 

Math Standards

MAFS.4.MD.1.1:

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), ...

MAFS.4.MD.2.4:

Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection.
