Fraction Tree

  evergreen tree Fractions, fractions,
All around me,
As I climb,
A fraction tree…

 

 

First
1/4
Then,
1/3
Then,
1/2
I see a bird…

Then,
3/4
Near the top!
At one-whole,
1/1
I have to stop…

Math Challenges
Why does the boy reach 1/4 before he reaches 1/3 as he climbs up the fraction tree?
Measure yourself, and then figure out 1/2 and 1/3 of your size. Can you draw a picture of yourself (mini-me) using those measurements?
