    Gr 4 Cl 7 Lesson- Sharing Sandwiches

    Gr 4 Cl 7 Lesson- Sharing Sandwiches

    Overview

    In this lesson, students explore partitioning into fractional parts by dividing sandwiches among different sized groups of students.  During exploration, students consider different ways that sandwiches can be decomposed so that children in the groups have an equal amount.  Students compare the amounts of sandwiches each person gets and explore equality among fractions through class discussion.
