## Identify and Compare Unit Fractions on Donuts!

Indulge in a delectable learning experience with our “Identify and Compare Unit Fractions on Donuts” worksheets. Created by a dedicated teacher, these two engaging resources offer a unique and mouth-watering approach to teaching fractions using the irresistible imagery of donuts.

In the first worksheet, students are presented with delightful images of donuts creatively split into various sections. The task at hand is both fun and educational – students get to colour in one section of the donut and then determine the corresponding unit fraction the image represents. This hands-on activity not only reinforces the understanding of unit fractions but also adds a sprinkle of creativity to the learning process.

The second worksheet takes the learning adventure a step further. Students are challenged to compare two unit fractions, both artfully displayed in the form of mouth watering donuts. This activity goes beyond mere identification, encouraging students to analyse and compare unit fractions against each other. It’s a delightful way to deepen their comprehension of fractions while savouring the joy of making delicious comparisons.

## Unit Fraction Activities

Unit fractions are fractions where the numerator is 1, and the denominator is a positive integer. Engaging in activities related to unit fractions can help students develop a solid understanding of fractions and their relationships. Here are some activities that can be helpful:

• Fraction Manipulatives: Use physical objects like counters, cubes, or fraction bars to represent unit fractions visually. For example, use counters to represent 1/4, 1/3, 1/5, etc.
• Fraction Games: Create games that involve unit fractions, such as fraction bingo or fraction card games. In these games, students match unit fractions to corresponding pictures or numerical representations.
• Fraction Sorting: Provide a variety of fraction cards or images, including unit fractions and non-unit fractions. Have students sort them into categories based on whether they are unit fractions or not.
• Fraction Art: Incorporate unit fractions into art projects. For example, ask students to create a picture using different colors, with each color representing a unit fraction of the whole.
