Use chalk to trace the whole plate on the board. Explain to students that a whole can be made of many equal parts. Then give them one set of fractions at a time to fit into the circle outline. Tell children the name of each fraction section as they fit it into the circle (for instance, one-half, one-third, or one-sixth). To extend, show children how to write addition equations with the fractions. Use this opportunity to explain that when the numerator and denominator are the same number, the fraction equals a whole, or 1.
