Geometry and Fractions can be so much fun to practice in 2nd Grade. While these concepts have been introduced in Kindergarten and 1st Grade, this 2nd Grade Unit 5 includes more challenging activities to help students gain a deeper understanding of them. It is truly a rewarding experience to see students’ knowledge grow as they build on previously taught lessons.

**In this math unit on Geometry and Fractions, students will learn to: **

*Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.

*Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

*Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of same-size squares and count to find the total number of them.

*Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths.

*Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.

## CENTER NUMBER 14: Roll a Fraction

Roll a die. Divide the shape into equal parts of the number rolled.

## CENTER NUMBER 15: Fractions- Spin and Cover

Spin the spinner. Cover a shape that has the same division as your spin.

## CENTER NUMBER 16: Comparing Fractions

Color the fraction on the shape. Decide if the first fraction is less than, greater than or equal to the second fraction.

## CENTER NUMBER 17: Greater Than or Less Than Fractions

Color the fraction on the shape. Decide if the first fraction is less than or greater than the second fraction.

## CENTER NUMBER 18: Fractions- True or False?

Choose a card. Look at the fraction shape. Read the fraction. Decide if the card is true or false.

For each page, there is a grade level standard attached so you know **EXACTLY** what you are covering! You can feel confident that **ALL** the standards for Second Grade are being covered!

## HOW DO I ORGANIZE THE UNITS?

I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins, because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon sized ziplock baggie.
