Walls Third Graders 24 students 1 IEP student 1 ELL student 1 504 plan student Topic: Math Unit: Fractions Length: 60 minutes Standards: MA Curriculum Framework for Math 3.NF.1 Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b Objectives: 1. To divide a group into equal parts 2. To name equal parts in a group with correct fraction names Understandings: 1. Students will be able to take a group of objects and divide them into equal parts. 2. Students will be able to name the equal parts with a fraction name. 3. Students will be able to find fractions of sets of discrete objects. Assessment: Student activity book Unit 7 page 8 Class Discussions before and after the activity Observing the students at work, checking the following questions: Can students find and name fractional parts of 12 objects? Can students use pictures or models to show that they have identified the correct fraction (e.g. rectangles or cubes)? Instruction: 1. Before session begins, have the easel, an easel pad, markers, and Unit 7 page 8. When finished: 1) Cities of 4 2) Math game we have gone over how to play written on the board. Gather students on the rug. Say to students, In math we have been working on finding fractions of rectangles, which are single objects that can be divided into equal parts. Its also possible to find fractions of a group of things. 2 minutes 2. Turn to easel and draw out 12 circles on a pad of the easel paper. Take out 12 marbles from a bag. Say to students, I have 12 marbles in my collection and I want to give my friend half. How many marbles should I give to my friend? I will give you 1 minute to come up with an answer and a strategy for how you solved the problem. 3 minutes
