This booklet works to further develop the concept of equivalent fractions and how they are simplified to lowest terms. It begins with manipulatives, moves to drawings, and then to calculation. Very important groundwork concepts are laid for later work in fractions.Prism Fractions Paper Set - Squares (free printable download available on TpT), Cuisenaire Rods and pattern blocks are necessary to do this booklet.
Answer Key is in the Fractions: Booklet 5 - Simplifying Fractions Parent/Teacher Guide.
A constructivist approach where students learn through hands-on exploration, discovery, inventions, and the creation of models.
The Parent/Teacher Guide has instructions on how to teach the lessons, sample dialogues, games, and the Answer Key. The Student Workbook has worksheets and practice pages. We highly recommended that you order both for a complete package.
