exploring equivalent fractions

Folding paper in different ways to find equivalent fractions.

We started by finding all the different ways of showing a 1/2 by folding a square. We then folded the square into quarters to find out how many quarters are in a 1/2.

 

We then folded a strip of paper into quarters and another strip of paper into eighths. We used both pieces of paper together to find equivalent fractions and even started to spot a bit of a pattern!

Fantastic fractions work Kingfishers!
