4th grade math worksheets
Last updated 4 years ago
This is a board I made while teaching fractions to my 4th graders. They loved finding equivalent fractions by "drawing" a line down from the end of a bar and seeing where it intercepts (e.g., 1/2 intercepts with 2/4, 3/6, etc. so they're equivalent). Pretty easy to make - just construction paper glued together.
How Can You Use Pattern Blocks to Simplify Fractions?
Equivalent Fractions Use pattern blocks to help students find equivalent fractions. Students simply take the blocks and trade them in for larger and larger blocks until they can not use any larger blocks to make the same shape. See below for some examples. The first row shows the blocks as fractions of 1 hexagon.
