Fall Fraction Words

This activity requires students to put together fractional parts of words to create a new word.  It's a verbal take on the fractional set model.  If correctly solved, the fractional parts spell out a fall word.

Extension:  Students may enjoy creating their own fraction words, using local clues, seasonal prompts or even holidays. Use student-generated fraction word activities as an easy do-now exercise at the beginning of class.  It's a great way to develop understanding of the set model of fractions.
