Lesson Plan of Common Fractions
Subject Mathematics
Grade III
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.
Follow up
 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.
