Since we've been using clocks as a model for learning fractions, I thought it might be fun to make Flip Books...in this case, mini books in which fractions appear to move, getting either bigger or smaller (depending upon the order in which you compile the pages.)
The pdf comes with 3 pages of "clock friendly" fractions. (23 fractions with an extra blank one, just in case.) At right, you see several samples of Flip Book cards, colored by a student. The assignment asks students to:
- Color each given fraction. The cards come with numbers and blank clocks.
- Cut out the cards.
- Sequence the cards. They are purposely printed out of order. The set includes equivalent fractions that must be placed sequentially.
- Staple into a Flip Book.
One of my students made a little stop action video to demonstrate...AKA, the "Separatists' evil clock plans..."
