Fraction Beads

The last few days for math, we have been focusing on fractions.  We started with the typical "Fraction Pizza" project, to show fractions as part of a whole.  But today we wanted to do fractions as part of a set.  My team and I came up with this project: 

(I remembered to take a picture of the final product!)


Students had to choose a chenille stem and string a set of beads on it in a pattern they chose.  Then, they had to figure out what fraction of the beads each color was.


They loved choosing the colors and creating any pattern they wanted!



And, SURPRISE!  I have the template (cuter than the one I used), available to download for FREE in my TeachersPayTeachers store!

Until next time,
