Ms. Willemin taught the students a lesson on fractions using pattern blocks. The students started with a hexagon. They then had to find which two pieces could cover the entire hexagon - two trapezoids. They then had to find three shapes that would cover those shapes - three diamonds. They then had to cover the shape with six triangles. The lesson was to reinforce that fractions are equal and that a whole can be divided into smaller parts.
