Lesson Plan : Introduction- Equivalent Fractions

**Teacher Name: **
| Gail Burton |

**Grade:**
| Grade 5 |

**Subject:**
| Science |

**Topic: **
| Equivalent Fractions |

**Content: **
| Math
Key Vocabulary: Equivalent,fractions, whole, numerator, denominator, fraction bar. |

**Goals: **
| Students will be able to identify fractions that are equivalent. |

**Objectives:**
| The student will identify equivalent fractions.
The student will recognize common equivalent fractions such as 1/2=2/4=3/6=4/8=5/10=6/12,1/3=2/6,4/12,1/5=2/10 |

**Materials:**
| Fractions Circles |

**Introduction:**
| Introduction will include identifying and naming different fractions pieces using a manipulative called, "Fraction Circles." |

**Development:**
| First students will check to see if all the fraction pieces are complete and identify the fractional pieces. With the naming of the fractional pieces, we will discuss any patterns students see as we display the fractions in fraction form. |

**Practice:**
| After discussion, students will be asked to find and list all the fractions equivalent to one-hlaf. We will also discuss any patterns they see and discuss how they know the fractions are equivalent. |

**Accommodations:**
| Students needing accommodations will need to identify a limited number of equivalent fractions. |

**Checking For Understanding:**
| Students will explore to see how many equivalent fractions they can name and demonstate they are equivalent. |

**Closure:**
| Why would we need to know equivalent fractions? How do we divide a given fractions into another equivalent form and why do we need to know? |

**Evaluation:**
| Students will record the equivalent fractions and be asked to explain how they know a fraction is equivalent to another fraction. |
