Our Line Plots and Fractions lesson plan teaches students how to plot fractions on line plots. During this lesson, students are asked to complete an activity in which they cut a piece of ribbon, measure it, and then add that measurement to a class line plot, which they then answer questions about. Students are also asked to look at a data set of fractions and plot each on a line plot before answering questions about it and the distribution of fractions on the line plot, demonstrating their ability to create a line plot and then analyze it. 

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to make a line plot to display data in fractions of a unit and analyze the data on the line plot.
