Using the same pattern blocks that were used in the iPad app, the children were asked to create a picture, trace and color it.
Once completed they were asked to add/multiply the block's fractional value ( 1/2, 1/3, 1/6 ) to find the total number used for each block. Once that was completed they were asked to determine how many 'wholes' they had when they combined their like blocks. The yellow block was our whole as it was in the app.
They then had to prove their math by making all of their wholes with their blocks and check their math efforts.
They had to work hard on this multi step project !
