This week, our arts integration lesson plan works perfectly for teaching and assessing adding and subtracting fractions! This can be a hard concept for students to grasp and this lesson makes the natural connections between fractions and note values. As a bonus, students get to play their “fraction phrases” using handchimes (though you could use hand bells, xylophones, or anything else that sustains sound). This lesson even includes the fraction worksheet that can be used for assessment. Many thanks to our friend, Pat Auld, for contributing another fantastic lesson – great for grades 2-5!
