FREE LESSON: Clothesline Fractions

By:  The Owl Teacher
Grades 2-5

Fraction is such a difficult concept for elementary students.  I try to make it fun and more hand-on than any other math concept.  One way I do this is through the use of my clothesline fraction activity.  

During this activity, I provide students with a piece of yarn, a few small craft sticks, and several t-shirts that I have printed up early.  Students cut out their shirts and determine where on the number line it goes.  The small craft sticks represent the benchmark numbers 0, 1/2, and 1.  

I also differentiate my student's t-shirts by the color I printed it on.  For instance some students know their fractions a bit better than others, so I provide them with fractions more than one.
