A 60 minute lesson in which students will apply knowledge and understanding of fractions to a real-world context.
- Explain to the students that, now they have completed their flag designs, they will be applying their knowledge and understanding of fractions to record and explain their spacing choices.
- Allow the students to complete the table on the worksheet. If teachers plan to use the investigation as an assessment tool, the students should be encouraged to complete this section of the task independently. The speed at which the students will complete these questions will vary.
- Challenge fast finishers to extend their learning by creating their own list of design elements and spacing guidelines for an alternate product e.g. a shirt for a sporting team.
