This hands-on fraction of a number activity uses google slides to allow children to manipulate objects to find the answer. Perfect for spring.
Does it feel like spring where you are? Spring came a little early for us this year, and we are enjoying the spring-like temperatures and seeing the flowers start to bloom…though we are not enjoying the pollen or the allergies that come with it.
Today, I have a fun fraction of a number activity that has a spring theme.
Prep – Work
I’m really enjoying creating google slides. It is a fun way to get in hands-on work without pulling out tons of stuff. Though there is a big need for that, so please don’t cut that out of your lessons. But once in a while, it is nice to be able to manipulate objects without all the mess. And this fraction of a number activity does just that.
Prep-work is simple.
- Download the slide by clicking on the large blueish button at the end of the post.
- Next, check your email and you will get a link to the slides.
- When the slide comes up, you will need to save it so you and your children can move the objects.
- Finally, teach the lesson and have fun with it.

The biggest thing to remember is you are teaching your children that fractions are equal groups, and this fraction of a number activity drives that home. They get to make groups based on a fraction and then sort the flowers to make equal groups.
Once they are done with that they may enjoy some of these paper activities.
I hope you enjoy!
