These two lessons with fractions of time/clocks have been taught multiple times to 5th grade yielding positive results from both students and teachers. Students show quick understanding from the hands on activity.
Included are two lessons: In the first lesson, students divide and cut apart colored clocks of halves, thirds, and fourths to find fractional parts of an hour. This lesson also has students find fifths, sixths, and tenths of an hour. The second part of this lesson is extended to find fractional parts of time less than an hour such as 45 minutes. Students will begin to recognize that the size of the whole affects the size of the fraction. Because many misconceptions arise from changing the size of the whole, lesson 2 explores wholes of less than an hour further through discussion and word problems. Differentiated practice pages are included.
