Our Introduction to Equivalent Fractions lesson plan teaches students all about equivalent fractions, including how to recognize and define them. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to create models of equivalent fractions using paper plates as a visual representation. Students are also asked to look at pictures and match the equivalent fractions, writing the correct fraction next to each picture.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain and define the concept of equivalent fractions.
