Learning Fractions with Lego blocks!

Transcript: This can be the modified activity for the students with IEP's in the class and who ever would benefit from starting out with this activity rather than the equivalent fraction worksheet (mentioned on previous slide). Cross-Curricular Activity with Extension Learning Fractions with Lego Blocks! Grade 4: The Ontario Curriculum Grade 4 Introduction to fractions using concrete materials: Task to assess learning at the end of the introductory lesson: Fractions can be made easier and much more fun to learn for children ... GREAT IDEA: Find old baby wipe boxes and hot glue a flat piece of lego board on the inside of the lid. The students can store and also build their lego blocks all in one little box. This activity can be used at the end of the lesson. It incorporates art so it will be a nice way to end off a fun math lesson by letting art serve as a relaxing method. This activity will also show how much the students have learned from the introductory lesson. FUN FRACTION ACTIVITY! MAKE MATH FUN! 2) Demonstrate and explain the relationship between equivalent fractions, using concrete materials (eg: fraction circles, fraction stripes, pattern blocks) and drawings (eg: "I can say that 3/6 of my cubes are white, or half of the cubes are white. This means that 3/6 or 1/2 are equal") Different ways to represent fractions with the lego: Lego blocks! The little bumps on the top of the lego blocks can be used as a counting tool. While comparing the lego blocks, students can count the number of bumps on each block in order to represent the fractions. Useful Resource for Teaching Fractions with Lego: 1) Represent fractions using concrete materials, words, and standard fractional notation, and explain the meaning of the denominator as the number of the fractional parts of a whole or a set, and the numerator as the number of fractional parts being considered. Cross-curricular Activity Fraction towers are a fun way to engage students in learning about fractions. The 9 colors of the lego blocks represent a particular fraction i.e. 1 whole, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10 and 1/12. These colors help students make connections among the different fractional parts during their exploration. Through fraction towers students develop number sense for fractions and mixed numbers, order fractions, and explore number operations with fractions using concrete materials. The towers provide students with a tactile, visual and graphical representation because they can stack the blocks upwards to show the relationships. The predetermined colors help make these relationships more explicit for students. First lesson on fractions and getting some of these reactions?! By: Shilmi Chokshi (Section 001) and Kayley Couper (Section 002) Start out the 'scary' fraction unit by introducing the FUN lego blocks! Split the class into groups of 3 to 4 students in each or if possible, have enough lego blocks for every student in the class for a more effective learning experience. Specific Expectations: Representing fractions with lego blocks can also be useful because of the different colors.

Now you can make any subject more engaging and memorable
