Fractions in Third

In third grade, we have been working hard on fractions.  The class started by reading about fractions and modeling fractions to learn the basics.


We then learned about improper fractions and mixed numbers.  We used fraction bars to help us compose and decompose mixed numbers and relate those to improper fractions.  Once we understood, we played a game to help us understand how mixed numbers and improper fractions can have the same value.



Then, after modeling and learning how to find and create equivalent fractions, we played "Go Darth" which is a version of "Go Fish" using equivalent fractions.
