Day 3: 25/9/2013-Fruity Fractions

I find this interesting lesson on Fruity Fractions, whereby you can teach children from the ages  of 5-7 all about fractions. The ideas are from Liz Webster and Linda Duncan.


Please enlarge it if you cannot see it clearly

‘Human Fruity Fraction Puzzles’

  1. Give each child a section from a giant apple.
  2. When the hooter sounds, they have to make a whole apple by joining up with other children. (For example, two children who each have half an apple would get together and make their apple on the floor.)
  3. Make it more difficult by asking pupils to make their puzzles in different ways, such as: one half and two quarters.
  4. Players could sit in a hoop when they have made a whole apple.
