Last week in Math class we started our Fractions unit. We reviewed fraction equivalence and ordering using different types of fraction models . This week students will learn how to compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators. They will record their comparison results using symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions.
CCSS Mathematics Standards, 4th Grade:

Last week in science class we started our Life Science Unit. We reviewed how organisms meet their basic needs in different environments. This week students will learn about different adaptations(structural, behavioral, & physiological) that organisms have to help them to meet their basic needs and survive in their environment.
