Exploring the Value of the Whole

Young mathematicians identify the fractions represented by various pattern blocks when "whole" is defined in different ways. They demonstrate that the area of equivalent fractions is relative to the whole. Individuals in small groups record their thinking in a journal and on chart paper to present to the class. Worksheets, assessments, and extension suggestions are provided.

I have been able to find a variety of resources to meet a variety of needs. As a special ed teacher I need to continually find new ways of presenting the material and Lesson Planet always has many great ideas that have worked wonderfully in my classroom. It's especially great when I need to make a last minute change to a lesson!
