Teach and consolidate fractions using this pack of fraction games, worksheets and posters. Begin with teaching your year one and two students to identify equal and unequal parts before moving onto teaching wholes and halves, quarters/fourths and finally eighths. Use the worksheets to support your introduction of the fraction concepts and then consolidate it using the games and activities included in this pack.(Australian Curriculum)
The following fraction concepts are addressed:

2. Colour the shapes that show equal parts.
1. Candy Shop - Cover the correct shape according to the spin.
2. Equal or Unequal card sort.
