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.
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!
Support your students as they utilize key academy language to speak about visual and numerical representations of fractions. Use this as a stand alone lesson or as a pre-lesson for *Fractions in Action*.
Give your students practice creating models with fractions from recipes! Your students will build an appetite for learning all about fractions, while “filling” measuring cup models with different ingredients to represent fractions.
Fractions become less intimidating when students understand that they simply describe parts of a whole. These lesson plans offer frameworks for math teachers to introduce fractions through the more familiar concept of parts of a whole. Engaging visual models and thoughtful prompts help bring to life fraction terms and concepts and give students practice identifying common fraction values.
