Writing A Story About Fraction Equivalence

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV opens for new memberships on July 1st. Join the wait list to get more information.
 

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.

Objective

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.

February 2020: Updated to fix the sample story.
