Sorry no one has given you ideas.

My favorite lesson was my introduction to fractions in third grade. I used the Hershey Fraction Book which I read aloud. As I read I also demonstrated breaking a Hershey's candy bar apart into its 12 sections as the picture book described. I used the document camera so everyone could see what I was doing as well as the pages of the book. (switching back and forth) The students each had a candy bar as well to do the same. It was challenging to complete the lesson before eating the candy bar! But the students were very motivated to learn about fractions.

I am retired now but found that math lessons which included manipulatives, a read aloud or a video (usually from Study Jams by Scholastic) was better than just a dry lesson straight from the text book.

I hope some other teachers respond. Good luck!

I was just watching the Fraction Museum video. Could be a nice one to use. You could adapt it to 4th by having them compare, add/subtract fractions, or make equivalent fractions. It would give good opportunity for differentiation, plus showcase how you worked with individuals.

It has great ideas for hands on math lessons. Maybe it will be helpful to you.
