Product Description
Students work together in small group to solve 3 levels of problems.
Level A cutting a rectangle into smaller fractions and explaining what happens
Level B students have to determine equivilent fractions
Level C is deconstructing fractions, taking wholes and breaking into fractions

Original idea from insidemathematics.org. I have used this activity with multi-grade level problem solving groups of 4-5 students with great success. I have seen 4th and 5h grade students spend over 90 minutes on a problem, and beg for more time! Even they were shocked by their stamina!

I have uploaded as a pdf. but contact me if you would like me to share an editable google drive file.
