Adding Like Fractions Scoot Activity: This interactive and engaging scoot activity is perfect for Pi Day in fourth grade or any day of the year. It has been classroom tested by my fourth graders and student approved! It is the perfect way to introduce pi and practice adding fractions with the same denominator. Please click the preview to see what this product includes.
With this resource, students design a pie, draw lines on it to "cut" it into pieces, shade it, answer questions about it, and write an equation. Then they scoot from desk to desk, observing each others' pies and answering questions about them. If you want to use this resource on Pi Day, I have included a powerpoint that briefly explains pi. The powerpoint also includes directions for the fraction pie activity, making it easier for you to facilitate.
Please note that this activity is a fraction activity
and not an activity that has the students use pi. Pi is a challenging subject for fourth graders so this lesson only introduces it to them. The activity has them add fractions with the same denominator. (A skill that doesn't involve pi.) This activity can be done any day of the year, not just on pi day.
Here is what this product includes:
-A lesson plan
-A fraction pie worksheet where the students design a pie and answer questions about it. (one of the questions has them write an equation.)
-A PowerPoint that introduces pi and guides the students through their fraction pie worksheet. This powerpoint makes it so you can easily show them what they need to do, allowing you more time to walk around and facilitate.
-A pie scoot page for students to fill out as they scoot from desk to desk
-An editable note that you can send home to parents. The note can be used to explain the celebration that you will be having and asks for pie donations. Since it is editable, you can change it to say whatever you would like.
This lesson plan is aligned with the following common core fourth grade standard:
