Now that we have reviewed all the questions, are there any additional questions that we would like to review before starting our fun activity for the day?

Have iPad hooked up to Smartboard to show a visual example to the class.

Student Instructions

Now that we have reviewed all questions about fractions, you are going to have a chance to match QR codes to your worksheet.

Your worksheet has shapes and fractions listed on it. When you scan a QR code, you will have to match the fraction with the shape on your worksheet.  You will also list the QR number on your worksheet.

Let's all take a look at the Smartboard as we work through an example together.

Are there any questions on how the QR match game is going to work?

If not, please take our your iPads, grab a worksheet, and get started.
