Lesson 3 - Communicate Using Drawings

To encourage your child to have fun on the Web while learning about Communicating Using Drawings, here are some games and interactive activities they can do on their own or in pairs.

 

Goal

Represent and explain fractions using drawings.

 

Instructions for Use

 

Fractions - Parts of a Whole lets your child use fractions to describe fair shares.

To use Fractions - Parts of a Whole, click on the up or down arrows to divide the shape into pieces. To make a fraction, click on pieces of the shape. This highlights parts of the whole in the illustration and a corresponding fraction statement appears. Have your child describe, using math language, the number of highlighted pieces out of the whole. Click on the 'New Whole' button for another illustration.

 

Island Rescue lets your child communicate about fractions using drawings.

To use Island Rescue, click on the screen to read the situation. Drag and drop fractions into the appropriate location to build a bridge, and put up a shelter.
