This "drag and drop" activity challenges students to put fractions in order from the lowest to the highest. Scroll to the bottom of this teacher page to find the activity. The activity continues to offer new numbers and options, so you may "play" as often as you wish. The activity offers a full screen option. There is also a link for reviewing information or introducing the topic (Revision Bite) and an online quiz. The entire interactive is embeddable by copying/pasting the "code" into your class web page or wiki.

tag(s): fractions (239)

In the Classroom

Share this site with your students on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Use the Revision Bite as an anticipatory set for a lesson about fractions. Then use the activities and online quiz as enhancements to your lesson (or even AS the lesson). The site is ready to go, easy to follow, educational, and simple for both teachers and students to use. Why not have students work in groups and create their own interactive fraction activities using PowerPoint (including graphics), or even create their own videos demonstrating fractions and share them on TeacherTube (explained here).

Provide this link in your class newsletter so students can practice fractions at home.

Learn math through simple, yet engaging videos at Math Antics' YouTube Channel. Choose from several different math topics such as working with fractions, multi-digit numbers, and factoring. Most videos run less than 10 minutes, making them perfect for use in many different situations. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

In the Classroom

Share these videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector. FLIP your classroom and have students view the videos at home to discuss and apply the next day in class. (This is a great option if YouTube is blocked in your school.) Use the videos to introduce or practice any math topic and assign others in the series for homework. Be sure to provide this link on your class website for students (and their families) to access at home for additional Math practice.

Comments

Math Antics is a resource that I can recommend without reservation to all 3 - 5th grade elementary school teachers. You can log on to their website and use their videos for free at mathantics.com. Even though my district's math curriculum provides videos for each lesson, Math Antics' videos are much better, and easier to understand, and my students LOVE them! Lauriekay, WA, Grades: 4 - 5

Bring the world of music and instruments into your classroom. With Virtual Musical Instruments, you can explore the guitar, piano, pan flute, drums, or bongos. Select the instrument, and follow the directions for using the keyboard to play the different notes. Create different melodies using different notes or rhythms. Use the guitar tuner to be sure you are in tune. There is no record option on this tool. If you want to record your beat, there are many alternative options (such as using a cell phone, iPod, or an old-fashioned recorder.

tag(s): music theory (41), musical instruments (47)

In the Classroom

Virtual Musical Instruments opens up the world of music into many other subjects. In music class, discover the different instruments, sounds, and rhythms the virtual instruments can produce. Allow your students to make their own compositions. Challenge them to determine a way to give the directions for their composition to another person so that they can repeat the original piece. In language arts class, discuss mood in literature. Determine the instruments used, the rhythms, and sounds needed to make that effect. During Readers' Theater, add a musical score for more excitement and engagement with further analysis of the text. Have students create a musical composition that tells a story. Now, play that musical story for the class, and turn it into a writing prompt. Use musical sounds and beats to illustrate the concepts of literature and the use of plot. Determine a melody for each character. Write to explain why each character has that musical composition. Math class brings the study of fractions with types of notes: whole note, half note, quarter note, and eighth notes. Let students create a musical sentence that represents them and write to explain why. Use whatever recording option is most practical in your classroom.

Raindrop Melody Maker is an interactive music-making activity. Pressing on different colored raindrops creates different pitches sounding like a flute and a piano. Create rhythms and they will repeat. Add several rhythms together to make a masterpiece. Use the metronome to stay with the beat.

tag(s): characterization (16), literature (275), musical instruments (47), sound (100)

In the Classroom

Raindrop Melody Maker brings creativity to every child with instant success. Use the sound recording to create music for a piece of writing or literature. In writing class, use to illustrate the plot of a story showing beginning, building to the climax, excitement, and finish. Use this site with literature to create a melody for each character to aid in analyzing their personalities. Use a deep, repeated pattern for the villain or an easy light pattern for the innocent. Have students create a masterpiece for their written piece. In a unit on sound, have students create a 3D Raindrop Melody Maker with some other real items such as glasses, drums, bells, or rubber bands. Create music in math demonstrating the interaction between sounds, geometry, and fractions. Let the music create shapes using the different tones. On the board, create different shapes and discover the melody they create. Use with fractions to determine the amount of color utilized to create the whole unit. See if equivalent "fractions" sound the same. The possibilities are endless depending upon your students' imagination! Add music to a piece of art to employ another sense to the creation, sound!

Fraction Demonstration is a simple, informative fraction slideshow. Watch as the circle breaks into different fractions as small as 1/4. Labels identify the different pieces of the circle as it demonstrates equivalence.

tag(s): fractions (239)

In the Classroom

View the Fraction Demonstration together on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Leave this site up during your fraction lesson as it continues to run through the different fractional pieces over and over again. Have students cut circles and label the different fractions for display on a classroom bulletin board. If you have iTouches or tablets, have students draw their own versions of the images and fraction labels they see here.

Mathademics! is an excellent YouTube Channel with many helpful math tutorials for upper elementary and middle school. Browse the video list of available videos. Browse through playlists of topics including Fractions and Decimals, Algebra and Functions, and Number Sense. The videos are under 5 minutes, making them a quick and easy addition to any math classroom or study session. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If YouTube is blocked at your school, you could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): area (65), conversions (22), decimals (133), equations (155), fractions (239), integers (41), mean (25), multiples (34), number sense (97), percent (82)

In the Classroom

Share these videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector. FLIP your classroom and have students view the videos at home to discuss and apply the next day in class. (This is a great option if YouTube is blocked in your school.) Use the videos to introduce or practice any math topic and assign others in the series for homework. Be sure to provide this link on your class website for students (and their families) to access at home for additional Math practice.

Wizenworld is a game-based middle school math learning site. The adventure begins in the forest as your character travels along a path on a mission to free magical creatures known as Meings. Defeat the underworld goons trying to keep the Meings in their cages with correct responses to math questions. Choose scenarios from fraction options such as word problems, fractions on a number line, or comparing fractions. Be sure to check back for new games coming soon relating to several other math topics such as geometry and algebra. There are some videos hosted on YouTube (mostly an introduction to this site). If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share (if necessary). Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): fractions (239), game based learning (101), number sense (97)

In the Classroom

Make a shortcut to this site on classroom computers and use it as a center. Share the link on your class website or blog for students to play at home. Share Wizenworld as a way to review for tests. Challenge students to complete each level within each math category. This is a great site to provide to students to stay sharp during the summer months.

Created and designed by a classroom teacher, Kids Know It features games, podcasts, videos, worksheets and whiteboard activities. Designed for pre-k through sixth grade, this site features spelling, math, history, geology, geography, biology, astronomy, memory, and dinosaurs. Some of the activities require Java. Although this site does include many advertisements, they are worth weeding through to find the good stuff. Note: many of the links offered are NOT actually created by KidsKnowit. They are content from other sites, shown inside a "frame."
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): addition (252), dinosaurs (57), division (172), multiplication (227), operations (126), preK (275), space (206), spelling (168), subtraction (209)

In the Classroom

Use Kids Know for your students to explore in class centers. Use for curious students to explore subjects you do not always teach, such as biology, chemistry, ... or dinosaurs! Find activities for your projector or interactive whiteboard, interesting videos, and ways for students to practice spelling. Use the videos as a model when studying other subjects, giving students structure and ideas for making their own videos. Share the videos on a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here. Use as an example for students to create their own wiki for each topic you study such as native Americans, Civil War, fractions, or for an author study. Not comfortable with wikis? Check out the TeachersFirst Wiki Walk-Through. List on your class website as a fun way to explore!
