1 Hook - Whole Class
The introduction to this lesson is to watch The Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar Fraction Book by Jerry Pallotta that is read to them on a you tube video. The objective of this lesson is to be able to recognize equivalent fractions. The attention getter of this lesson is to show the students Hershey’s bars to raise their curiosity about how candy can be used to learn fractions. Through going to this YouTube video:
Students will wach the video that the teacher provides.
2 Independent Practice
The teacher will asses the students as they are working with IXL at:
The students must be focused as they are working through the IXL website.
3 Wrap up
The teacher must create a Kahoot game for the students to answer as their ticket out the door. I have created a 3-question Kahoot for this lesson:
Students must corectly answer the questions within the Kahoot! In order for students to show mastery, they must answer two of the three corectly.
Key Standards Supported
Number And Operations—Fractions
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
