#### Simplifying fractions game. Materials: deck of cards, game board (paper with a line drawn down the middle). Remove all face cards and shuffle. Distribute deck between 2 players. Players turn over 2 cards each and place them on the board, 1 above the fraction bar (numerator), and 1 below the bar (denominator). There should be 2 cards above and 2 below-4 total. First player to simplify the fraction wins the cards. If they tie, split cards evenly. Continue until 1 player has all cards or time is up

#### 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!

#### 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

#### •4.NF.1. Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions Great fraction foldable for students to create and use as a reference.

#### Fraction books maybe use this with 5th and have them include equivalent fractions decimals and percents.

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.
