The following assignment is just a quick, and hopefully fun, task to help students comprehend fractions. They would probably say they painted in art class today if you were to ask them, and that’s ok, hopefully some would remember the fractions aspect of the session.
Here you can see the upshot of the lesson. Three toppings and each topping broken into their proper fractional expression.
She’s not done yet, but she’s doing a great job.
I love the nice painterly approach of this piece. A real light and not heavily reworked watercolor. Not easy to do. The picture does not do it justice.
Signed, dated, properly done, and all in 30 minutes! She did great!
They have the totals written down and the fractions all written properly, looks great!
This one has bacon!
A nice action shot, another light painterly approach. I try to encourage this sort of thing, but it’s hard for the students not to want to go back in to a watercolor and work it some more.
This pizza is dripping with sauce.
I was in awe of the fact that from the 2nd grade on up the fractions concept was understood by well over half the students on the first presentation of the lesson. Another beautiful job painting in 30 minutes.
