I did this Fraction Museum with my class today. It was amazing. If you’re looking for an engaging activity to wrap up fractions, I totally recommend it.

I'm retired,but enjoyed watching this video. I'll share this with some friends. He sure got a lot of teaching/assessing done in a short amount of time. This would be terrific for the end of the school year.

I like this! especially since we teach fraction during testing and they get total fraction fatigue. I could also think up a lot of simple ways to expand it, like having 2 exhibits and during the gallery walk they would add the greater than, less than symbols or determine an equivalent fraction. Thanks!

I decided to do 2 math museums this week since we are just wrapping up the year and not a place where I can expect them to learn new concepts.

We did an equivalent fraction museum-they had to create models that could represent 2 equivalent franction. The example I give them was a tower the I built that was three levels high with the legs on the bottom level being a different color each level had 4 legs. I said this represents 2 equivalent franction in one model becuase each level represent a part and one of the three parts in red so it shows 1/3. Each level also has 4 legs so there are 12 total legs and 4 of them are red so it also is showing 4/12. Therefore 1/3 is equal to 4/12. Then I let them go for it. I had to walk around and assist and help with misconceptions but it went really well. So they were clamor in for their next math museum day.

A few days later we did a perimeter museum. I use colored bears to create an L shape and I labeled each side with the number of bears on each side. Then we added them up to find the perimeter. They seemed to get it so I let them go. They did a great.

This is going in the to-be-used-again file

I'll have to remember to go back later and watch the whole video on my desktop computer. (My iPad is being touchy, and it keeps freezing.)

But from the bit I saw and the comments here, it sounds great! It's so important that kids really get an understanding of fractions early, rather than just memorizing "what to do".
