Hopefully you now understand the concept of a half being two equal parts, so we will move on to finding  a half of a quantity. In this lesson we will  work practically using counters to find a half using the concept of sharing equally into two parts. Ask questions such as:

How many altogether?

How many equal parts are we splitting it into to find a half?
Does this quantity represent half?
How can we check our answer.

A half of __ = __.

___ is a half of ___.

You will need some  concrete apparatus to half different amounts;maybe  use coins, counters, pasta or smarties/ sweets (if you can work with them without eating them all up!) wink
