Another Outside Fraction Lesson

Bruce and I are still reviewing reducing and multiplying fractions.  We did this lesson out in the yard, and afterwards looked at the problem again on the whiteboard. 

2/8 of the flowers are pink.

“Peanut Butter” them together, and 1/4 of the flowers are pink.

Share half of the pink flowers with Jenna.  1/2 of 1/4 = 1/8.  Jenna gets 1/8 of the flowers.

That’s the same whiteboard I use for the Morning Message by the way.  It get’s a lot of use!
