1. Students will listen to the teacher read "Rabbit and Hare Divide an Apple" by Harriet Ziefert. Students will make predictions and discuss the book.

2. Students will watch a lesson on educreations on fractions (http://www.educreations.com/lesson/view/fractions-on-a-number-line-and-chart/886897/). Teacher will then follow up with a review of fractions.

3. Students will use the iPads to take pictures of fractions around the school and/or at home. (iPads will not be allowed to go home but pictures may be taken at home and emailed to the teacher's account.) Examples include half of a sandwich, fraction of girls and boys in the classroom, recipes, fraction of a pizza, etc.

4. Using the iPads, students will use their knowledge of fractions to create a lesson/presentation in educreations to show what they know about fractions - what they are and examples of fractions in the real world. They will identify why the object represents a fraction and the actual fraction.

5. Students will present their educreations to the class.
