These worksheets are perfect for students who have been introduced to the idea of fractions and have a general understanding that a fraction is simply a way of describing a part of something to its whole. For instance: if you were to ask them to give you half of something, they should be able to do that in a general way, if not exactly.
The Thanksgiving Fractions Worksheet packet is intended as a next step to help you introduce fractions more exactly and in written and picture form. When used in order, the first few worksheets allow you to introduce simple fractions to your students and help them gain an understanding of what that fraction looks like by either coloring or circling to represent the fraction itself. The remaining worksheets act as reinforcement of that concept as well as an introduction to the concept of equivalence.
