The purpose of this lesson is for students to apply their understanding of fractions as division to create a Notice and Wonder activity.
This lesson offers teachers the opportunity to listen to ways in which students notice and describe sharing and understanding fractions as division. After the warm-up, students create their own Notice and Wonder activity and then facilitate their Notice and Wonder with other students in the class. Students can draw pictures or find images to use for their Notice and Wonder from books or other sources as the teacher determines.
