PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“Fractions of a Shape” is a great higher-level, critical-thinking opportunity for students to determine and justify how spaces within a shape relate to the whole unit.

This product can be used as a group or individual activity, a center, or a long-term project.

Students are directed to write the fractional amount for each section on the shape itself. Then, they explain in writing their reasoning for labeling each fraction as they did. Students’ reasoning will be expressed differently, but they should revolve around basic fractional relationships.

Once students feel confident labeling parts of a whole, it’s a fun challenge to work backwards! The last section of puzzles gives specific fractions of a whole and asks students to draw and label them on a blank shape.
