What we are learning



Unit 11: Lines, Angles, and Symmetry

4.6D 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

4.6A  identify points, lines, line segments, rays, angles, and perpendicular and parallel lines

4.6B  identify and draw one or more lines of symmetry, if they exist, for a two‐dimensional figure

4.6C apply knowledge of right angles to identify acute, right, and obtuse triangles

Unit 12: Fractions - Comparing, equivalence, and number lines. 

4.3D Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators and represent the comparison using symbols 

4.3C Determine if two given fractions are equivalent using a variety of methods

4.3G Represent fractions and decimals to the tenths or hundredths as distances from zero on the number line 


Unit 5: The Changing Earth

4.7.A examine properties of soils, including color and texture,
capacity to retain water, and ability to support the growth of

4.7.B observe and identify slow changes to earth's surface caused by
weathering, erosion, and deposition from water, wind, and ice

Unit 6: Producers, Consumers, and Food Webs

4.9A investigate that most producers need sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide to make their own food, while consumers are dependent on other organisms for food

4.9B describe the flow of energy through food webs, beginning with the Sun, and predict how changes in the ecosystem affect the food web such as a fire in a forest

Unit 7: Adaptations and Traits

4.10A explore how adaptations enable organisms to survive in their environment such as comparing birds' beaks and leaves on plants 

4.10B demonstrate that some likenesses between parents and offspring are inherited, passed from generation to generation such as eye color in humans or shapes of leaves in plants and other likenesses are learned such as table manners or reading a book and seals balancing balls on their noses
