Fractions by Pattern Block Activities

Don't tell the kids this is anything more than a puzzle. Look at what it teaches:

Mathematics Topics:
Identifying fractional values, equivalent fractions, adding and subtracting fractions, ordering fractions, and identifying geometric figures and their properties.

Appropriate Grades: 3rd - 6th, maybe. But precocious kindergarteners could do some of it, and middle schoolers needing another look at fractions could appreciate it as well. "Drawing Fun Fractions" would be good for most middle school students.

These activities are designed to cause students to think; they are not algorithmic. They do not say, To add fractions, do step one, step two, step three. Students will explore geometric models of fractions and discover relations among them.

Lesson Procedures: Students will reinforce their knowledge of fractions by using online pattern block activities. The lessons are designed for students to work independently or with guidance from the teacher. Lessons should be printed so students can draw and color the appropriate shapes.
