Goal: The goal of this assignment is to provide another visual example that demonstrates that fractions are part of a whole. Students should be able to create their own fractions out of a whole in a fun and creative way!
Hello amazing fifth graders! Today we are going to review what we know about fractions by creating fraction flags on Google Draw. You are going to get to be creative and develop your own, beautiful flag using different rectangles and triangles. Here is my flag for an example!
Next, you are going to go through and find the fraction amount for each color in the flag! Simplify the fraction down to its simplest form. For example, mine would be 1/8 green, 1/2 pink, and so on. Write in your answers with a text box over each color to explain your work. We will print out these flags and put them in our room! Feel free to get as detailed as you would like.
Let this flag represent you and you personality! Have fun with it!
You got this!
