EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students examine a half-full beaker of water and discuss whether the empty part is a fraction of the whole or not. They conclude that even though parts might not be full or shaded, they are still part of the whole. Then they create their own fraction models with shaded and unshaded parts.
