This resource from Cynthia Lanius, reviewed for grades 3-5 by Illuminations, features an online activity and follow-up questions dealing with fractions and geometry. Students experiment with pattern blocks to make different shapes, then determine the relationships among the shapes (i.e. How many triangles make up a parallelogram?). Finally, they express these relationships as fractions. Read the full review on the Illuminations site, where you can access this resource directly.
