We just started our fractions unit this week and one my teammies found Cara Carroll's fractionpillar activity which you can read more about here!
Anyway, I was thinking I wanted to try something different and I was reminded of my friend Lauren, who posted this on TPT recently, which you can buy here. Isn't it cute!?
But this got me thinking that instead of a fractionpillar, I wanted to do a fraction bot!!
I cut out four different shapes with our die cutter in different colors and instructed students to build a fraction robot with them! I told them they could even cut those shapes into parts if they needed to. Then, they had to write what fraction of the shapes were square, rectangle, triangle, or hexgons! You could adapt by doing the fraction of colors used, or even both for a little challenge!
Here is how some of them turned out!
I love this little short one!
Aren't they cute!?
Here are the cut outs I used. I actually adapted the bottom part a bit to better suit you guys so I hope you can use it! And, it's FREE! =)
