Fractions on the River Trail - Making Posters

Here are a few photos from class today. In this lesson from 5th grade Bridges Second Edition, students had to locate places on the "river trail," based on fractions in a 30 kilometer stretch. They initially identified fairly easy markings on the trail (1/2, 1/3, etc.) and then used those increments to figure out more challenging fractions (1/12, 1/15, etc.) of the distance, expressing final answers both in fractions and in kilometers. Phenomenal work, all!


  1. This work is amazing, Cynthia. Look at the level of precision and engagement in those faces! WOW!!

  2. Oh my gosh, Cynthia - the kids look so intent on what they're doing, and their posters are terrific! I'm going to send this link to Pam, Hannah, and Kim - it's sure to make their day!! Thanks for sharing! Allyn


Thank you for leaving me a message. I love comments almost as much as I love chocolate! And I do LOVE chocolate. :)
