Fractions – Different ways of showing half

I am learning to represent half in many different ways using different materials.

I know I can do it when I can represent half in many different ways.

To gain a better understanding of what dividing into halves means, watch ‘Give Me Half! by Stuart J. Murphy’

You may use paper, LEGO blocks, toys you have, patterns, apples, oranges, sandwiches and playdough. Take photos of all the halves that you have created.
