SS.4.2NATIVE AMERICAN GROUPS AND THE ENVIRONMENT: Native American groups, chiefly the Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) and Algonquian-speaking groups, inhabited the region that became New York. Native American Indians interacted with the environment and developed unique cultures. |

SS.4.3.b.2Student will investigate colonial life under the Dutch and the English, examining the diverse origins of the people living in the colony. |

SS.4.6.a.1Students will examine why people began to move west in New York State. |

RL.4.1Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text. |

RL.4.2Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text. |

RL.4.3Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., a character's thoughts, words, or actions). |

W.4.2Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly. |

W.4.8Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; take notes and categorize information, and provide a list of sources. |

W.4.9Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. |

SL.4.1Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher led) with diverse partners on grade 4 topics and texts, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly. |

L.4.3Use knowledge of language and its conventions when writing, speaking, reading, or listening. |

4.OA.3Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding. |

4.NBT.1Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 / 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division. |

4.NBT.2Read 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. |

4.NBT.3Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place. |

4.NBT.4Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm. |

4.NBT.5Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models. |

4.NBT.6Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models. |
