With this packet, your students will be far more engaged, dividing and coloring to create a colorful picture, than they would be completing fraction worksheets. The questions in this packet are questions that build conceptual understanding.
As they move through the directions they will be asked to divide some of the bubbles, color certain fractional parts of the bubbles, or color a bubble set. They are then able to look at the colored bubbles and use them to complete the questions and computations. Essentially they will create their own visuals to use as they problem solve. Students will not be able to simply calculate or follow an algorithm. These fraction activities challenge students to think and reason as common core standards require.
Your students will:
•identify fractional parts of sets
•add, subtract and multiply fractions
•write addition and multiplication equations to represent the models and solutions
Because this activity packet includes practice in both 4th grade and 5th grade CC standards, this packet is entirely appropriate for grades 4-6 and can be used for review, for grade-level practice, for challenge, or as a formative assessment.
