Materials

01

Distribute different colored Post-it® Super Sticky Notes to your students.

02

Have your students cut their Post-it® Super Sticky Notes to create a visual representation of fraction sizes, using different colors for each part. Since the notes are a 3” square, their shape makes it easy to visualize fractions of the whole.

03

Next, have your students “reassemble” the whole note by affixing each strip on a Post-it® Big Pad and write the fraction next to their notes.





04

Now, hang the sheets from the Post-it® Big Pads around the room to create a gallery for the students to explore.
