To extend the activity, My students made a number line by dividing sentence strips into a certain amount of pieces (I gave my super high kids twelfths, my high kids tenths, and my on level kids ninths). Then they drew lines at each fold and labeled it (0/9, 1/9, 2/9, 3/9.. etc). Then, I gave them houses with equivalent fractions. (For example, for ninths the group had (0, 1/9, 2/9, 1/3...2/3..1) and they had to place them at the same spot on the number line. They loved it and one of my kids even came up with the idea to name the street after the denominator, i.e. Ninth Street.
Sorry the picture it a little hard to see! I thought it was better before I left school and if I put this off until tomorrow that will really mean it doesn't get posted until Tuesday. Yay for long weekends!
I hope everyone has a happy Friday!!
Good Luck Teaching,
