Fun with Fractions

We've been having fun learning about fractions using visual, hands-on activities this past week. After learning what a fraction is, students created fraction lap books to see what fractions look like as part of a set and on a number line as well as get introduced to equivalent fractions, improper fractions, and mixed fractions. Students classified M&M's by color to create fractions...and then enjoyed eating them of course! We also created our own equivalent fraction bars project to help us visually see equivalent fractions and then learned how to multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number to make equivalent fractions. The equivalent fractions bars project is available in my TPT store:


Happy learning!
