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.
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.
