#### The Teaching Thief: Art + Math = Fractional Me. Using only squares and half squares, create and the work out fraction of each colour (or body part?) add goggly eyes for fun

#### The Teaching Thief: Art + Math = Fractional Me - Fractional Me is a portrait created out of small squares. (I taught a few students to use the di-cut machine and they just went to town.) Students are only allowed to use whole and half squares for ease of counting later on. They construct their portrait and are then responsible for determining the fractional amounts of squares for each color. LOVE!

research shows that to master fractions, students need multiple opportunities to practice with many varied representations of fractions. So a one time activity of cutting up a Hershey bar into smaller squares, although great fun, may not be enough to truly cement the understanding of how fractions work. By all means, cut up chocolate bars, pizzas, and pies. And add even more activities such as the ones featured here.
