Today you are going to carry on learning about quarters. It is a practical lesson and you will need some counters so please use whatever you have a lot of whether it's lego, buttons or sweets! Work through the PowerPoint presentation lesson 3 and use your counters to share equally into four parts. Discuss the following questions:
How many altogether?
How many equal parts are we splitting it into to find a quarter?
Does this quantity represent a quarter?
How can we check our answer?
A quarter of __ = __.
___ is a quarter of ___.
Then complete the practical activity by using counters to find a quarter of a quantity. The lesson is all about sharing quantities into four equal parts. It's fine if you find it easier to do this by halving and then halving again.
