# Lesson Plan of Common Fractions

## Students` Learning Outcomes

• Express the fractions in figures and vice versa.(Repeated)

### Information for Teachers

• In this lesson we will practice fractions with 4 as denominator.
• Fraction means dividing equally so during activity ensure that things are divided equally into four parts by students. • While teaching the lesson, also consult textbook where and when applicable.

### Material / Resources

Writing board, chalk/marker, duster, apple, playing dough/clay, piece of papers (to make different shapes), cutter, chart paper

### Introduction

• Ask a student too cut an apple (or anything) in four equal parts. • Ask him/her to give two more pieces to another friend and write its fraction; 2/4.
• Ask him/her, how much he/she has now? ¼
• Now ask him to write the fraction of all the distributed pieces; ¾.

### Development

Activity 1

• Divide the class into groups of four.
• Ask each group to draw different shapes (e.g. circles, parallelograms, rectangles and triangle) on a chart paper. • Tell them to divide each of the shapes into four equal parts.
• Ask them to colour each shape to show the following fraction, • Ask any two volunteers groups to present their work.
• Encourage them to explain procedure by using appropriate vocabulary.

Activity 2

• Ask students to colour the diagrams according to instructions given below each diagram and write their fractions. • Draw different shapes and colour them for the following fractions. • Ask students to discuss completed work sheet in pairs to explain the procedure to each other.

### Sum up / Conclusion

• Ask following questions to conclude the lesson.
• How can we write one fourth in fraction?
• How is one fourth different from one half?
• What does the number below the bar and above the bar, represent?
• How many parts of a square do we need, and colour to show 1/3 and ¾.

### Assessment

• Give some diagrams of shapes to students and ask them to write the value of fractions in the boxes. • Give some diagrams of different shapes which are divided into four, equal and unequal parts. • Ask them to circle all those shapes which are divided into four equal parts.
• Ask students to colour them to show the given fraction. • Ask students, “Are shapes with unequal parts can be written as fractions? If no; then explain why?
• Think of the ways we can divide a pack of biscuits with 20 biscuits, into fractions like, etc. ### 3 thoughts on “Lesson Plan of Common Fractions”
