## Fractions – Dividing a Whole into Halves

I am learning to split an object into two equal parts and describe them.

I know I can do it when I can create a necklace that has two different halves.

Now that you understand what a whole is, today’s focus is on identifying halves. Dividing a whole into two equal parts makes two halves.

You will be demonstrating what two halves look like by making your own pasta necklace:

1. Get a long piece of string (for a necklace).
2. Have two different types of pasta. This may be two different colours or different types that you can thread onto your necklace. EG: penne, rigatoni, macaroni, straws, Froot Loops and beads.
3. Make a necklace to show each half having the same amount of pasta. How do you know that they have the same amount?
4. Please bring your pasta necklace to Wednesday’s WebEx meeting to share with the class.

## Design and Create Your Own Dr. Seuss Character

I am learning to create my own new Dr. Seuss character.

I know I can do it when I have created a detailed character.
