Ed Emberley's Picture Pie is a book of images created by pie fractions. I have always wanted to do an art lesson using pie fractions. Also my third grade teachers have stated that students have trouble understanding fractions and adding them.
Included are four templates of different fishes from Levels 1-4. You will need to make your own 3 inch diameter circles or DOWNLOAD the 3 INCH CIRCLES that I made for this lesson. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/3-Inch-Diameter-Circles-for-Picture-Fractions-1174415
1. Students select and color 3 inch diameter circles first.
2. Then students split circles into fractions to create the image of each fish.
3. Students will then add the fractions they used to create the image.
I am planning to teach this lesson this week and will make any modifications.
