Footwear Fraction Fun
In school, children learn about fractions in two different ways. The first is a fraction as part of a whole, i.e. ½ the pizza is gone. The second way is fractions as part of a set, i.e. 3 out of 4 of the cars are blue. This footwear-focused activity introduces fractions as part of a set and it's the perfect way to generate excitement about fraction concepts. The activity requires a group of people, at least 4. However, the more people involved, the better. Ideal for classrooms and hot days where little feet could use a breather, this activity could also make for a fun party game.
