Standards NCTM Math Skills: Process Standards - Problem Solving: Apply and adapt a variety of strategies to solves problems NAEP 4th Grade Science Standards: Process Skills - Scientific Inquiry S4.3:Identify patterns in data and/or relate patterns in data to theoretical models Content Standards - Interdependence of Organisms L4.3: Organisms interact and are interdependent in various ways including providing food and shelter to one another. Organisms can survive only in environments in which their needs are met. Some interactions are beneficial; others are detrimental to the organism and other organisms.
Standards ISTE NETs Standards for Literate Students: Communication and Collaboration – Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively. Research and Information Fluency – Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. Students locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, and use information from a variety of sources and media. Evaluate and select information sources and digital tools based on the appropriateness to specific tasks. Students process data and report results. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making – Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, solve problems and make informed decisions using the appropriate digital tools and resources. Technology Operations and Concepts – Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations.
LESSON # 2:WHAT IS A FOOD CHAIN? Objectives: Students will be able to trace the path of energy that food chains follow as animals find food. Students will know the difference between herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. Bloom’s Taxonomy: Analysis Gardner’s M.Intelligence: Intrapersonal and Interpersonal Additives: Grouping Objects Assessment: Students will be assessed on their ability for organizing and categorizing consumers as either herbivores, carnivores or omnivores. They should know the path of energy of the food chain. Quantifiable Rubric: Scale 1 – 3 will be used.
LESSON #3:WHAT ARE PRODUCERS? Objectives: Students will be able to demonstrate why plants are called Producers and the process of Photosynthesis. Bloom’s Taxonomy: Application, Synthesis M.Intelligence: Visual, Spatial, Logical Additives: Glass Container for Plants & Seeds. Assessment: Students will be assessed on their ability to produce plants from plant seeds by utilizing light energy from the Sun, thus demonstrating their ability to solve problems by applying the acquired knowledge they have. Quantifiable Rubric: Scale 1 -3 will be used.
LESSON #6:WHAT IS AN ECOSYSTEM? Objectives: Students will be able to identify and describe different types of biomes that make up an ecosystem. Bloom’s Taxonomy: Analysis, Knowledge M.Intelligence: Visual, Verbal Additives: Grouping Objects Assessment: Students will be assessed on their ability to correctly label and group organisms, plants, and animals into their biomes, then subsequently group them into their ecosystems. Quantifiable Rubric: Scale 1 -3 will be used
