Mini lessons unit aligned to Common Core Standards (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.A.1) to systematically teach students the concept of equivalent fractions using fraction models. May be used in order to build on concepts through each page or out of order to differentiate to students' needs.Each lesson is guided to facilitate understanding and most pages have sections with questions for discussion or to reflect on to encourage a deeper understanding .
- partitioning wholes
-shading equivalent fractions on fraction models
-recognizing and generating equivalent fractions
- multiplying the numerator and denominator to find equivalent fractions
The unit can be used for focused mini lessons, independent work if the students have a good grasp of the content or to re-teach.
A student cover page is included in case you want to print and staple a packet for students.
