4 detailed lessons to teach comparing 2 fractions with a benchmark of ½. The lessons with the PPT (with effects) allow for student interaction. Includes a sorting activity to categorize fractions into 3 categories: more than 1/2, less than 1/2 and equal to 1/2. The fractions are with denominators 2, 4, 6, 8,10 and 12.
-Detailed lesson plans.
-Printables with answers for students to work independently.
-A PPT with effects for each lesson to systematically teach this concept. The printables and answers are included in the PPT as an option to doing them whole class.
-A sorting activity to do during math centers or for students to use when they finish their work.
-Mental math incorporated into lessons.
