Understanding Equivalent Fractions Through Activities

Students in room 222 are taking the fear out of fractions by learning through activities. Hands-on activities are engaging for all learning styles. They obviously engage students who are tactile or kinesthetic learners, who need movement to learn best. They also engage students who are auditory learners, who talk about what they’re doing, and visual learners, who have the opportunity to see what everyone else is creating.

These students remained actively engaged in each activity as they learned how to create equivalent fractions. One of their activities is featured on the April bulletin board on the first floor in the branch building. Good job room 222!
