Fractions of a whole and Fractions greater than 1
Multi-Disciplinary Approach (Math, and Reading/ Writing)
Students will write the fraction that is presented by each neighborhood character in the cloud directly above each building. Some are fractions of a whole, some are fractions greater than 1.
I tied this into Writing, and had the students give each character a name. They then wrote 3-5 sentences about each character which included a story that went with their fraction.
This can be extended for higher level learners. The students can write a word problem that then goes with the story where they are asking a math question related to the fraction and the story. They can have fun working in small groups or pairs to solve each others questions.
