Math
Numbers/ Fractions MGSEK.CC.6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies. MGSE1.OA.4 Understand subtraction as an unknownaddend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8. MGSE2.NBT.1 Understand that the three digits of a threedigit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones. Understand the following as special cases: a. 100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens — called a “hundred. b. The numbers 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine hundreds (and 0 tens and 0 ones). MGSE3.NF.1 Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b. MGSE.3.NF.3 Explain equivalence of fractions through reasoning with visual fraction models. Compare fractions by reasoning about their size. a. Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line MGSE4.NF.3 Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b. MGSE5.NF.2 Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + ½ = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < ½. Graphing MGSEK.MD.3 Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count. MGSE1.MD.4 Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another. MGSE3.MD.3 Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one– and twostep “how many more” and “how many less” problems using the information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets. Geometry MGSEK.G.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size. MGSE1.G.1 Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and threesided) versus nondefining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes. MGSE2.G.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. •MGSE3.G.1 Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories. •MGSE4.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. (Must include instruction about symmetry – Fold the kite in half. Is each half the same or different?) •MGSE5.G.3 Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two–dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.

S1E1. weather data to identify weather patterns
a. tables &/or graphs to identify & describe different types of weather & the characteristics of each type b. identify forms of precipitation such as rain, snow, sleet, and hailstones as either solid (ice) or liquid (water) c. current weather conditions by observing, measuring with simple weather instruments ( thermometer, wind vane, rain gauge), & recording weather data (temperature, precipitation, sky conditions, & weather events) on a calendar seasonally, & geographically d. identify seasonal patterns of change S4E4. predict weather events and infer weather patterns using weather charts/maps and collected weather data a. weather instruments (thermometer, rain gauge, barometer, wind vane, and anemometer) are used in gathering weather data & making forecasts b. weather maps to identify fronts (warm, cold & stationary), temperature & precipitation to make an informed prediction about tomorrow’s weather c. cloud types (cirrus, stratus, & cumulus) & data of weather events & patterns throughout the year d. differences between weather & climate S4E3. demonstrate the water cycle a. flow of energy in water as it changes states from solid (ice) to liquid (water) to gas (water vapor) & changes from gas to liquid to solid pathways water may take during the water cycle (evaporation, condensation, & precipitation)
