This lesson was an engaging way to show students how to find equivalent fractions using visual models and multiplication. I taught this lesson with my students using their interactive student notebook. The lesson includes a preview which leads into the lesson. It also has numerous slides for the interactive learning part of the lesson and a process for students to practice independently. This lesson displays nicely on a whiteboard for whole group instruction or computers and tablets for small group instruction.
This resource contains 50 full color slides that focus on finding equivalent fractions. Also included are left and right side activities for the interactive student notebook. The preview slide starts out with a graphic organizer for students to write fractions equivalent to one half. Then the interactive learning part of lesson models how to use a visual model to find fractions equivalent to one half. The slides thereafter are a step by step guide to finding equivalent fractions using a visual model and multiplication. Several of the slides are great visual aids to help differentiate instruction for all learners through chunking and repetition. There is also a process at the end of the lesson for students to practice independently. This process can be used as an exit ticket to see what the students have learned. Be creative and do what works best for you and your students.
