# Fractions on a Number Line - Lesson for Grade 3, Chapter - Making and Representing Fractions

In the "Fractions on a Number Line" lesson, Grade 3 students will embark on an exciting and informative journey into the world of fractions, specifically focusing on their representation on a number line. This lesson is a critical part of the "Making and Representing Fractions" chapter within the "Foundations in Numbers and Fractions" unit, designed to build a robust understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts.

Through engaging activities such as the "Number Line Fun Worksheet," students will learn how to accurately place and identify fractions on a number line, starting with simple exercises and gradually increasing in complexity. The "Finding Fourths Worksheet" will specifically hone in on understanding and identifying quarter fractions, a common and practical subdivision in real-life scenarios. The adventure continues with the "Great Wall Math Worksheet," which creatively integrates historical themes to reinforce the concept of dividing wholes into equal parts.

Understanding how to represent and interpret fractions on a number line is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, it fosters a deeper understanding of fractions as not just parts of a whole but as specific points that can be precisely located and compared.

• ### Activity 1 / Number Line Fun Worksheet

Number lines will help your child get better at mathematics. No doubt that your child’s teacher already gives them assignments and practice questions which will be intended to clear up whatever confusions they might still have with the topic, but you can give them an extra hand. There are three number lines in this worksheet. Help your little ones check off the correct fraction for each point on the different number lines.

• ### Activity 2 / Finding Fourths Worksheet

To help your kids properly learn mathematics, you will need a lot of help, including extra homework, stimulating exercises, and exciting worksheets such as this one. The four equations in this printout should be enough to get your child’s mind stimulated enough. The task is simple enough; your child must check the number lines that represent fractions with denominators of 4.

• ### Activity 3 / Great Wall Math Worksheet

If your kids don’t already know much about the Great Wall of China and some other historical monuments, you can use this opportunity to teach them fractions and history at the same time. The three sisters in this printout took a trip to China to visit their grandparents. Has your child ever been to China? On the sisters’ trip, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China. Ask your child to study the pictures, and check the correct point on the number line to show how far each sister walked.
