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.
Watch the video below to learn more about halves. ↓↓↓
You will be demonstrating what two halves look like by making your own pasta necklace:
Follow these steps to make your pasta necklace:
- Get a long piece of string (for a necklace).
- 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.
- Make a necklace to show each half having the same amount of pasta. How do you know that they have the same amount?
- Please bring your pasta necklace to Wednesday’s WebEx meeting to share with the class.
