This Halves And Fourths lesson plan also includes:
Young learners start out by going to the board to draw lines through shapes to identify halves. Then they are given a square of paper and are directed to fold the paper into halves and then into fourths. They color the halves and fourths different colors. Additionally, 1st graders practice identifying different values of fractions based on pictures shown. This is a good, hands-on lesson plan which will help reinforce skills around identifying and understanding fractions.
