With this packet, your students will be far more engaged, dividing and coloring to create a colorful picture, than they would be completing fraction worksheets. Your students will be challenged by rigorous fraction problems while having St. Patrick’s day fun. The questions build conceptual understanding.
As they move through the directions they will be asked to color fraction sets.
They are then able to use the colored sets to complete the questions and computations. Essentially they will create their own visuals to use as they problem solve. Students will not be able to simply calculate or follow an algorithm. These fraction activities challenge students to think and reason as common core standards require.
Your students will:
•identify fractional parts of sets
•add, subtract and multiply fractions
•write addition and multiplication equations to represent the models and solutions
•represent the fractional sets on a number line
Because this activity packet includes practice in both 4th grade and 5th grade CC standards, this packet is entirely appropriate for grades 4-6 and can be used for review, for grade-level practice, for challenge, or as a formative assessment.
