Fractions of a shape

In Poplar we have been learning to find fractions of a shape.

We started by finding halves and quarters by folding and cutting a rectangular slice of bread.

Then we found halves and quarters of paper rectangles and coloured in different amounts; such as two quarters.

We discussed fraction word problems.

We decided that Greg was not correct because halves had to be equal.

Then we found and coloured fractions of a circle.

Finally, we completed a fraction challenge and tried to find lots of different combinations of colouring halves and quarters.
