## Circle Thirds Worksheet

First, remind your kids of the different ways that shapes can be divided. When a shape is complete, they are called wholes. When a shape has been divided into two equal parts, they are called halves. Similarly, shapes that have been divided into three parts are called thirds, and four parts are called fourths. Now, look at the shapes in this worksheet with your children. Circle the cookies that have been cut into thirds.
Ask your child if they know that whole shapes can be cut up and divided to form smaller parts. Explain how a whole shape, such as a square, can be cut into smaller pieces to form fractions. And, when a whole shape is divided into two equal parts, these parts are called halves. In the worksheet, there are pictures of examples of whole shapes, fractions, and halves. Look through the printout with your child and check all rectangles that are cut in two equal parts ½.
This equal parts practice worksheet requires that your child has some knowledge on halves and equal pieces beforehand. Then, help your little ones look through the printout and check all the rectangles that are made from equal blocks. At the end of the exercise, your children should be able to properly differentiate between equal parts and mismatched parts.
As your child learns more and more about wholes, fractions, halves, one thirds, and one fourths, you might want to test their knowledge a little bit. Use this worksheet to see just how much of the exercises your youngster was able to understand. In the exercise, your child is to look at the windows of the house. Then, check the correct fraction that the window is divided in from the options provided.
This exercise is fairly simple, and simply requires that your child have a good prior understanding of shapes and fractions, and can easily identify them. Ask your child to look at the shapes on the top of this worksheet. Ask them what shapes they are. Then, look at the fractions underneath the shapes. Ask your child to circle the correct 3 parts that make up the whole shape.
Can your children tell when pieces have been cut in equal halves or when they are cut in more than two parts? Test their knowledge with this colorful worksheet. In the exercise, your children will need to look at all the pairs of blankets in the printout. Then, ask them which of the blankets have been patched in equal parts. Count the parts with your child, and check the correct number of parts in the options provided.
Fruits are definitely delicious to eat, not to talk of how colorful they are. Can your kids tell you some of their favorite fruits? This colorful worksheet uses fruits to help teach your children some geometry. Remind your children of the different ways shapes can be cut, and what they are called. When you cut shapes into two equal parts, they are called halves. Check the box next to the fruit in the printout that are cut in half.
When it comes to learning how to identify and work with fractions, it's always best if children have good visual representation to refer to when they're trying to identify different groups. With this free worksheet, they'll look at how various circles are divided into thirds and fourths. Then, they'll have the opportunity to choose the shapes that are divided into both thirds and fourths. They'll learn that fractions need to be divided into equal parts, not just certain numbers of sets, and find success in choosing the correct colorful circles.
In this worksheet, your children will need to circle the parts which will correctly form the rectangle on the left when put together. This exercise will test not only your kids’ knowledge on shapes, it will also test their ability to correctly identify and put different shapes together to make up the whole of a new shape. Look at the different parts on the right and ask your child to circle which of the parts will form the rectangle given on the left.
Explain to your students that by carefully putting two halves, thirds, and fourths of a shape together, you can make a whole of a new shape. Then, look at this worksheet with your students. There is a rectangle at the top of the printout. The task is to find which of the sets of halves, thirds and fourths can be put together to correctly make the given rectangle. Ask them to check all the correct sets.
