Introduce the idea of equivalent fractions with this guided exploration using pattern blocks. Students are asked to explore, construct meaning, and generalize to novel situations about equivalent fractions.
Love this hands on activity! I'm using it as a math center during my chapters on fractions. I've extended some of it and added on improper fractions and mixed numbers also. Students love to make up their own now. Thank you!
Jenn, I love your extensions! In particular, I like that students were able to generate their own -- that's how you know something is working! If I find some free time, I'll try to update the product to include numbers greater than one.
