Name  Description 
Unit Fractions  Students divide a hexagon into two, three, and six equal parts and write the unit fraction representing each part. 
Two Equal Parts  Students divide figures into two parts, each having the same area, and write the unit fraction representing each part. 
Which Shows One Third?  Students are shown three circles and asked to select the one that correctly shows one third shaded and explain why the other two do not. 
What Does One Fifth Mean?  Students are shown the fraction one fifth and asked to describe what it means. 
Halves of an Irregular Polygon  Students partition an irregular hexagon into two equal parts and describe each part using a unit fraction. 
Four Parts of the Whole  Students partition a rectangle into four equal parts and describe each part using a fraction. 
Name  Description 
Clipart ETC Fractions  Illustrations that can be used for teaching and demonstrating fractions. Fractional representations are modeled in wedges of circles ("pieces of pie") and parts of polygons. There are also clipart images of numerical fractions, both proper and improper, from halves to twelfths. Fraction charts and fraction strips found in this collection can be used as manipulatives and are ready to print for classroom use.

Mystery Strips  Fractional Parts of the Whole  This problemsolving lesson has students working together in groups to discover that fractions are made up of equal parts of onewhole. In this lesson, students are exposed to equivalent fractions as well as challenged to work beyond unit fractions to discover the fractional part of onewhole that the "mystery strips" represent. This highly engaging lesson takes into account all levels of learners and will challenge even your most advanced students. 
Fraction Action!  This lesson will help students understand that fractions are parts of a whole. The lesson introduces fractional parts using familiar manipulatives. 
Discovering Fractions  In this lesson students will make initial discoveries about fractions. Students will work together to explain and record the discoveries they make while using manipulatives to explore fractions. 
Fractions Meet Pattern Blocks  Students will identify the fractional parts of a whole using pattern blocks. 
Symmetrical Solutions  Students will use paper cutout and geoboards to find and create lines of symmetry. Students will have the opportunity to work with a partner and independently. 
Fraction Folding  Part 2  Students will use foldables to create and name fractions. Students will sing a song to learn the terms numerator and denominator. Students will identify how many unit fractions compose a fraction.

Finding Fractions at Camp: Fractions on a Number Line  Joey learns about the location of unit fractions on a number line while at camp in this interactive tutorial. 
Sharing With Fractions  Learn to name or identify fractions, especially unit fractions, and justify the fractional value using an area model in this pizzathemed, interactive tutorial.

Money in the piggy bank  This task is designed to help students focus on the whole that a fraction refers. It provides a context where there are two natural ways to view the coins. While the intent is to deepen a student's understanding of fractions, it does go outside the requirements of the standard.
