### 1. Finding equal parts

Children need to understand what a fraction is. When we divide a whole into equal parts we create fractions. A fraction is just an equal part.

In this lesson, children are encouraged to create 4 equal parts.

Tip: Ask the children to also show you 4 unequal parts (if haven’t done it already!).
