1.G.3 Partitioning Circles and Rectangles aligns perfectly with the Common Core Standard CC 1.G.3. After the use of these materials students will be able to meet the following learning targets:
- I can partition (divide) a circle and rectangle into two and four equal parts.
- I can describe the equal parts of a circle and rectangle with words (halves, fourths, and quarters).
- I can describe the whole by the number of equal parts (e.g., two halves make a whole).
- I can explain the more equal parts in circle or rectangle, the smaller the parts.
This mini-unit includes crafts, sorts, reasoning activities, workbooks for halves and fourths, "show what you know" by creating a poster, and classroom reference posters.
