Garden Committee Agenda

10-30-13

Questions:

Share Standards for each grade level

- CCSS.Math.Content.K.MD.A.1
Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or
weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single
object.
- CCSS.Math.Content.K.MD.A.2
Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common,
to see which object has "more of"/"less of" the attribute, and
describe the difference.
*For example, directly compare the
heights of two children and describe one child as
taller/shorter*.

- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.K.7
Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., explore
a number of books by a favorite author and express opinions about
them).
- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.K.8
With guidance and support from adults, recall information from
experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a
question.
- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.1.2
Write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic,
supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of
closure.
- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.1.7
Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., explore
a number of "how-to" books on a given topic and use them to write a
sequence of instructions).
- CCSS.Math.Content.1.MD.A.1
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects
indirectly by using a third object.
- CCSS.Math.Content.1.MD.A.2
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units,
by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end
to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the
number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or
overlaps.
*Limit to contexts where the object being measured is
spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or
overlaps*.
- CCSS.Math.Content.1.MD.C.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.
- CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.D.9
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects
to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of
the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where
the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.

**Research to Build and Present Knowledge**

- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.2.7
Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., read a
number of books on a single topic to produce a report; record
science observations).
- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.2.8
Recall information from experiences or gather information from
provided sources to answer a question.

CCSS.Math.Content.3.MD.B.3
Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a
data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step "how many
more" and "how many less" problems using information presented in
scaled bar graphs. *For example, draw a bar graph in which each
square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets*.

CCSS.Math.Content.3.MD.B.4
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked
with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line
plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate
units- whole numbers, halves, or quarters.

CCSS.Math.Content.4.MD.A.3
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world
and mathematical problems. *For example, find the width of a
rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by
viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an
unknown factor*.

Review resources from DOA

Several lesson ideas found. Need to identify specific standards
and placement in LA or Math curricula.

Possible field trip to garden

- no time

Next meeting 1/29/14 - Begin lesson planning
