We began by brainstorming ‘What we already know about ‘fractions.

Then, we watched a video on BrainPopJr. to learn more about fractions. 

We noticed that a fraction tells you the number of parts out of a whole.

The students drew pictures to recognise 1⁄4, 1⁄3 and 1⁄2 of shapes.


Then, they worked in teams to create equal sets of objects with a focus on fractions. ​






Our next inquiry was into measurement.

How might we measure different objects?

We have watched different videos to learn about length, mass and volume. We explored the connection it has to the Base 10 system.

Length and Height


MASS

VOLUME



We wondered how we can use the language of fractions to share our measurements.

We are working independently and in teams to solve problems and learn mathematical concepts.
