PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fraction multiplication makes way more sense when students can visualize why their answer are what they are. With this modeling and coloring activity, students can see and understand how fraction multiplication works, and they will understand why their products are less than the original factors.

No extra fraction strips or other manipulatives are necessary. Just grab 2 colored pencils, and they're all set!

Student Directions: As you create your models, use 2 colors to shade the values. Don’t worry about simplifying for now.

I recommend using this as a teaching tool, right along with the students. Check out the Preview so you can see how the activities are scaffolded.
