Target math academic language in this multidisciplinary lesson! Write descriptive sentences about tape diagrams that show fractional parts. Use this lesson on its own or use it as support for the lesson Fractions and Word Problems.
Help students color-code their way to multiplying fractions! Students will learn how to multiply fractions using area models. Use this lesson on its own or use it as support to the lesson Area Models and Multiplying Fractions.
This lesson helps your students become confident mathematicians when it comes to representing fractions visually in a variety of ways. Use this lesson as a pre-lesson to Fraction Hunt or teach it independently.
Encourage students to explain the relationship between decimals and fractions to help them with future computations. Use this lesson on its own or as support to the lesson Area with Decimals and Fractions.
Help your students get familiar with creating models for unit fractions with this hands-on activity. Students will get into a frenzy creating many unit fraction models to reference as they learn more about fractions!
Some understandings are revealed through repeated, clear and simple steps. Use this lesson plan to teach your students to illustrate area model for products when multiplying fractions. It’s a four-step adventure!
In this hands-on lesson, your students will get to sharpen their measuring skills as they measure lengths of items in your classroom to the nearest quarter inch. They'll get to then use their data to create line plots.
Where's the other half? In this lesson, young mathematicians learn the relationship between halves and symmetry through a fun scavenger hunt. Your students will have a blast figuring out what makes a shape symmetrical.
Slice those pieces and mix it up! In this lesson that follows “Slice It Up! Part One,” students will begin recognizing different ways to create equal shares in whole shapes, creating a fraction poster by the end of the lesson.
