This activity is meant to be used to let students see visual models of fraction equivalents. You will need:
*Circular fraction model kits, or printable fractions up to eighths. If you have fraction circles, it is easy for them to trace
Explicit model: I already introduced equivalent fractions when we started this activity. We had also already completed a fraction picture activity with the standard for identifying fractions. Before the lesson, I made a picture (my dog) with the fraction pieces, and had them prelabeled. I explained that we would be making 2 of the same picture, but we would be using different fraction pieces to make the 2nd model. While modeling, we discussed and layed the new fractions on top of the picture to check that they took up the same amount of space, or were equivalent.
This worksheet was created to go with this activity to check for understanding. It also includes one section where the students have to model one of their fractions on a number line.
