Fraction activity with grade 5 and 6 – Isai Ambalam

The children were given a scenario where they had to equally cut pencils and place it in their geometry boxes. They did not physically cut pencils but used papers instead.

The question given was : Cut 5 pencils and place them in 4 geometry boxes equally. Initially they had some difficulty in placing the pieces equally in the boxes. But once they figured out a pattern in their mind, they began to make different questions themselves and  solved it.

Once they got a good handle of the procedure, they didn’t need the pencil(paper) and the geometry boxes anymore.

They also drew pictures of pencils and geometry boxes in Scratch and demonstrated how they split the pencils equally into the boxes.
