Pattern Blocks - Fractions # 1

The Size of the Whole Affects The Size of the Parts

Exploration and Assessment

1. Give students time to explore the relationship between the sizes of the pattern blocks.

- Ask occasional thought-provoking questions.

2. Move discussion to a guided “fraction talk”...

- If the Hexagon is equal to one whole, which of the shapes is equal to ½ ?

- If the Trapezoid is equal to one whole, what is the value of the Triangle?

- If the Triangle is equal to ½, which shape is equal to 1 whole?

3. Give students the Assessment to check for understanding.

- Allow students use of the pattern blocks to support completion of assessment.
