Big Idea

Perimeter
4.MD.3 – Apply area and perimeter formulas for
rectangles in real world and mathematical problems
4.G.1 – Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, and
angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and
parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
-Turtle Art
-Write
Create two different rectangles
that have a perimeter of 520 units.
Factors
4.OA.4 – Find all factor pairs for a while number in the
range 1-100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple
of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole
number in the range 1-100 is a multiple of a given one-digit
number. Determine whether a given whole number in the
range 1-100 is prime or composite.

numbers.
Angles
4.MD.5 – Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are
formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and
understand concepts of angle measurement.
-Turtle Art
Create angles.
Classifying Triangles
4.G.1 – Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right
acute, obtuse) and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify
these in two-dimensional figures
-Turtle Art
-Journal
-Portfolio
Creating different types of triangles
and then making a Portfolio for the
different images they saved.
Complimentary Angles
4.MD.5 – Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are
formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and
understand concepts of angle measurement:
a. an angle is measured with reference to a circle with its
center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the
fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays
intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle
is called a one-degree angle, and can be used to measure angles

will add up to 90 degrees
Angles 360
4.MD.5 – Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed
wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand
concepts of angle measurement:
a. an angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center
at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction
of the circular arc between the points where the two rays
intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle
is called a one-degree angle, and can be used to measure angles

Place Value
4.NBT.2 – Red and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten
numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit
numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =,
and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
-Abacus
-Journal
Using Abacus to show place value.
Each rod will show a different value.
Parallel and Perpendicular
4.G.2 – 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. Recognize right triangles as a category,
and identify right triangles.
-Turtle Art
-Journal
Students are using Turtle Art to make
lines and spaces.
Real Word Angle Word Problems
4.MD.7 – Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is
decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the
whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition
and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real
world and mathematical problems.

Fraction Word Problem
4.NF.3.d – Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of
fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators,
e.g.,by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
-Paint
-Abacus
-Write
Making a visual representation of a fraction
and then writing word problem from the representation.
Decomposing Fractions
4.NF.3.b – Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same
denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by
an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
-Abacus
