Third graders have been working hard studying fractions. To help the children learn more about equivalent fractions, they placed fractions on a "human-sized" number line! This over-sized number line allowed the students to manipulate the different fractions and conceptualize the equivalent proportions. The students will apply their knowledge of equivalent fractions to be able to find fractions in their simplest form, as well as to compare different types of fractions.
