This lesson is easily differentiated and makes a super cute display as well as an engaging hands on maths lesson or maths centre.. Simply print the shapes onto a variety of coloured paper and get students to experiment folding the shapes into halves, quarters, eighths, thirds, fives, the options are endless.
I printed the shapes onto A4 coloured card and cut black A3 paper in half and stuck it together to make the body of the caterpillar. Students chose 4-5 shapes to break up into equal pieces by folding carefully and going over the folds in marker and recording the fraction on each piece of the fraction- see an example attached.
The shapes included are stars, rectangles, circles, hearts, squares, hexagons, triangles and pentagons.
I hope that your class enjoys using this resources as much as mine did.
