Learning Objectives

Materials Needed


  1. Introduction (5 minutes):

    • Ask the students if they have ever shared a pizza or a cake with a group of people. Ask them whether they have noticed that the slices are sometimes divided into equal parts. Introduce the term "fraction" as a way of describing a part of a whole.
  2. Identifying Parts of a Fraction (5 minutes):

    • Write a fraction on the board (e.g., ⅓) and ask the students what they think each part of the fraction represents: the numerator, the denominator, and the line between them. Define each term and give more examples.
  3. Representation of Fractions (10 minutes):

    • Distribute the shape manipulatives to the students and ask them to divide the shapes into equal parts to represent different fractions. Have them write the fraction on paper and share with the class their answers.
  4. Comparing and Ordering Fractions (5 minutes):

    • Introduce the concept of comparing and ordering fractions by presenting two or more fractions to the class. Ask the students to help you compare and order the fractions. Use the whiteboard to record the comparison and order of the fractions.
  5. Practice (5 minutes):

    • Distribute worksheets to the students for additional practice in identifying and representing fractions. Walk around the room to assist students who need help.
  6. Conclusion (5 minutes):

    • Review the concepts covered in the lesson and ask the students to share something new they have learned about fractions. Ask them if they have any questions or concerns.


Assessment can be done through class participation in discussions, correct answers to worksheets, and ability to share what they have learned.
