Paper plate fractions

Thanks to kindergarten teacher Sue B. for this super easy idea to show kids what fractions are. You need two paper or styrofoam plates, same size, different colors. You can just color plain white paper plates with crayons if you don’t have two different colors on hand. Cut a straight line from the edge to the center of each plate. Interlock the plates and rotate to demonstrate halves, thirds, quarters, etc.
