The fabulous FUN FACTORY WOODEN FRACTION PUZZLE is a great way to introduce the concept of fractions to your child.
There are five circular cutouts in the sturdy wooden base. Each cutout contains coloured parts representing a whole and basic fractions. Each piece has the fraction painted in white.
- Yellow represents one whole
- Green represents halves
- Red represents thirds
- Orange represents quarters
- Blue represents fifths
Encourage your child to match the colours and fit the fractions together in the board. Talk about each one ie: the 1/3 has 3 pieces that make a whole. Count how many pieces in each fraction and talk about how big or small it is compared to the others.
Once they has grasped the basic concepts, progress to more complex problem solving. See which fractions combine to make a whole ie: place 1 x 1/2 and 2 x 1/4 pieces together into one cutout to make a whole.
The FUN FACTORY WOODEN FRACTION PUZZLE encourages logical thinking and helps to develop problem solving skills.
