Fractions – Whole and Half

I am learning to understand what a whole is and what a whole looks like.

I know I can do it when I can understand and draw whole objects.

This week we are going to look at fractions, but before we do that, it is important to talk about what we mean by a whole.

A whole means one entire thing – Something complete.

Independent Task

Think about the following statements:

A whole cake

A whole banana

A whole class

A whole song

A whole bag of lollies

A whole pizza

What do these statements mean? Discuss.

Your task is to draw these objects as a whole.
