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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
