Fraction Flags

The activity involves the creation of fraction flags to depict a single fraction in various ways. The primary goal is to provide students with a visual understanding of how the same fraction can be represented differently. This exercise serves as a foundational step towards mastering the addition and subtraction of fractions with both like and unlike denominators.

To complete the task, students are required to utilize a ruler to accurately divide their fraction flags into equal parts. This not only enhances their measurement skills but also reinforces division skills and fine motor abilities. The cross-curricular nature of this activity integrates language arts objectives, contributing to a well-rounded educational experience.
