PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a "serial collection," also referred to as a "screened collection." One at a time, an image is revealed to the students. They make educated guesses about what the common theme is among all of the items. In this particular serial collection, the common theme is HALF. Images that are revealed include half moon, half an orange, etc. This activity is meant to launch a fraction lesson over understanding halves or equivalencies. Students are using critical thinking skills (making connections, inferences, and reasoning skills) to determine the common theme. This strategy is also highly engaging for students, and teaches them growth mindset strategies -- it is okay to make a guess, and be incorrect. Each guess is valuable in arriving at the final, correct inference. PPT Slides
