Students Love Partitioning Shapes to show Fractional Pieces

Second Graders love using geoboards to partition shapes to show fractional parts. 
Fair Shares
Equal Parts

Students created a pocket and were asked to create each shape given on their sheet on the geoboard. After creating the shapes, students partitioned the shapes into halves, fourths, or eights. Then they justified their answers by showing the equal parts on their shape cards. Students loved using the geoboards!
