Our Fractions lesson plan enables students to identify fractions, the parts of a fraction, add/subtract like-denominator fractions, and reduce fractions. Students are asked to complete an interactive activity in which they cut out circles with different numbers of equal parts and then compare how many are needed in various scenarios in order to help visualize fractions. Students are also asked to complete practice problems adding and subtracting fractions on their own.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify fractions, the parts of a fraction, add/subtract like denominator fractions, and reduce fractions.
