Instructional Ideas

  • Make a class game center; leave game pieces and fraction strips in an accessible location for pupils to play when time permits 
  • Recreate figure diagrams on chart paper for a larger sized reference tool 
Classroom Considerations

  • Class members should be familiar with comparing fractions and how to make equivalent fractions
Pros

  • Scenarios to support pupil-teacher interactions are provided
Cons

  • Pages intended for print are not pictured on a separate page, making size and practicality a challenge
