Description: In Topic A, students partition a whole using a ruler to precisely measure equal parts. They then see how cups can be used to measure equal parts of water. From there, students are invited to fold fraction strips and then estimate to draw pictorial models. Objective 1: Specify and partition a whole into equal parts, identifying and counting unit fractions using concrete models. Objective 2: Specify and partition a whole into equal parts, identifying and counting unit fractions by folding fraction strips. Objective 3: Specify and partition a whole into equal parts, identifying and counting unit fractions by drawing pictorial area models. Objective 4: Represent and identify fractional parts of different wholes.
