This is a SmartBoard lesson that compares unit fractions (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, etc.). In this lesson, students write fractions and use visuals to compare the sizes of different unit fractions. They will also order unit fractions. Finally, at the end of the lesson, students are asked for the rule they can use to compare unit fractions and are provided the opportunity to compare fractions without looking at pictures of the fractions.

This SmartBoard lesson supports the Harcourt School Publishers (HSP) math series/curriculum (second grade, lessons 2 and 3 in Chapter 19).
