Here is an outstanding lesson on equivalent fractions! Using pattern blocks, learners are encouraged to structure their thinking by finding as many ways as possible to represent an equivalent fraction. By modeling equivalent fractions with shapes, young mathematicians are able to recognize factors as multiples in order to identify and simplify fractions. The lesson may be helpful to split amongst two days, and can also work well with 3rd and 5th graders.
