Fun and Easy!
When we were learning about what a fraction is, how they work and what they look like I came up with this fun craft activity.
The math curriculum offered some totally confusing worksheets... and I thought this would be much more fun and understandable.
The children took a paper plate and folded it in fourths. They then opened it up and placed a sticker in the center. The sticker is to help prevent the kids from cutting clear through the paper plate! Then the children cut on the folds up to the sticker. Finally, the kids colored how many petals they wanted, glued stems on and wrote their math on it.
Some of my students even wrote little stories about fractions, how flowers grow or what they liked about the project.
Fun, cute AND academic. :)
