**Lesson Plan of Match the fractions with related figures**

**Subject Mathematics**

**Grade III**

**Students` Learning Outcomes**

- Match the fractions with related figures.

**Information for Teachers**

- One third should be introduced when student have grasped the concept of one half and one fourth because it is somehow difficult to fold or divide a whole into three equal parts.

- To give concept of fraction teacher should use a whole to divide equally.

- She/he may take some objects to ask students to divide it in half, fourth of it or third of it.
- While teaching the lesson, also consult textbook where and when applicable.

**Material / Resources**

Writing board, chalk/marker, duster, piece of papers/strips/cards, 4 cut outs of coloured quarter circle, fraction dice, candies, glue and coloured chalk

**Introduction**

- Write 1/3 on board. Ask students what does number 1 and 3 show?
- What do these numbers stand for?
- Draw a rectangle on the board, draw lines to show three equal parts.

- Colour two parts and ask students to write its fraction.
- Repeat the procedure with other shapes.

**Development**

**Activity 1**

- Give each student a sheet of paper and 4 pieces of quarter circle.

- Ask students to draw a big circle on the sheet.
- Write ¼ on the board and ask students to show this fraction by pasting the cut out on the circle.
- Now write 2/4 and ask them to paste the cutout on circle and increase it till the circle is completed.

**Activity 2**

- Divide class into groups.
- Give two sets of cards, one containing fractions written in words, like; half, one fourth, three fourth, one third and two third etc.

- Whereas second set of cards containing different fractions written in digits, like;

- Ask students to match the cards and draw some shapes and color its parts to show the fractions.
- After arranging their cards invite other groups to see the work they have just produced.
- Arrange this activity as game, the group which will complete work first will win the game.

**Sum up / Conclusion**

- Discuss the word one third with students.
- Ask how to write one third in numbers?
- What is meaning of number below the bar and above the bar?
- What we call the number above and below the bar?
- Define one third for the students and emphasize on dividing a whole into three equal parts, e.g. three parts of class and number of students in each part.

**Assessment**

- Give some diagram of shapes to student and ask them to draw lines to show parts and colour it.

- Draw some shapes on the board divided into two, three and four equal or unequal part.
- Ask students to draw these shapes on their notebook and answer it, “Are all of these fractions?’ if yes; tell the fraction.

**Follow up**

- Assign fractions 1/3, 2/3, ¾, ½ to students and ask them to choose any shape to demonstrate given fractions.
- Ask students to divide a circle and a rectangle into as many equal parts as possible and write the fractions of each part.

- Ask the students to solve the questions given in the textbook.
