Writing A Story About Fraction Equivalence
When fractions take on a new denominator, it's as if they're wearing a disguise - same value, new look. So let's write a story about fraction equivalence starring a fraction who needs to fit in with a new group.
Students who already understand fraction equivalence can take that knowledge and create a short story about a fraction who needs to go undercover and fit in with a group of unlike fractions.
I write a brief, sample story about brave 1/2 entering a meeting of the Evil Eighths by transforming into 4/8 with the help of his sidekick, 4/4.
After creating their story, students can turn it into a comic, video, skit, or anything else that meets your approval.
