This Equal Areas as Fractions Mini-unit includes both print & digital resources that will save you time as you plan your guided math lessons!


Lesson 1 - Partitioning Shapes into Fraction Units

Lesson 2 - Finding Area of Fraction Partitions

Lesson 3 - Equivalent Areas

Mini-Unit 2 of the Guided Math Geometry Unit takes the opportunity to explore the connections between previously learned skills and geometry. Students will review area model fractions, but with an understanding of area measurement they didn't have when studying fractions. They will further examine attributes of shapes when analyzing area model partitions of different shapes. Finally, area measurement makes another appearance related to fractions, where students will build wholes from given fraction units and find the area of fractions of whole shapes!

Each lesson includes the following:

  • PowerPoint Lesson: Bright, engaging digital lessons introduce and model each concept, including interactive questions and error analysis tasks to check understanding. (editable text)

  • Math Mat & Task Cards: Task cards guide students through hands-on activities designed to reinforce the concepts introduced in the Mini-Lesson. (editable questions)

  • Practice Pages: Perfect for in-class practice or homework, these activities provide plenty of support, but ask students to start demonstrating their understanding more independently.

  • Exit Tickets provide a brief snapshot of student understanding for you at the end of each math block. (editable text)


  • Quick Check (lessons 1-3 quiz with editable questions)
  • All digital options'

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
