Simplifying Fractions Activity

This Simplifying Fractions Activity lesson plan also includes:

Warm-up pupils' fraction muscles with a four-question quiz, then delve into a learning game designed to reinforce the concept of simplifying fractions. Based on the "I do, We do, You do" method of teaching, the lesson directly exhibits how to decompose numbers; then, it guides scholars through the same process using a different fraction; and finally, observe what they learned while they play a game. The lesson's learning game requires learners to match fractions to their decomposed and simplified form.
