Third-graders in Gail Beyrer and Allison Gerbert's integrated co-teaching class at Rhame Avenue created a life-sized number line on which to plot fractions. Each student received one or two sticky notes with fractions of different denominators. They were then invited to help their classmates place them in the correct spot on the number line. At the end, the students drew conclusions about what they observed, noting that there were many ways to say one whole!
