Unit 5, Lesson 3# Partition a whole into equal parts, identifying and counting unit fractions by drawing models

EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students establish the importance of having equal parts when partitioning a whole into fractional parts. Then they create other fractions by making copies of unit fractions. For example, they divide a whole into four equal parts to make fourths, shade one part to identify one fourth, and then copy that part to make three fourths.
