Understanding the concept of a fraction by shading in a part of a shape is a fairly standard introductory activity. On these worksheets, students are required to represent two fractions on one diagram. This is a set of 18 worksheets with various shapes and instructions.
In my classes I’ve printed two per page for those that finish the main lesson early. As there are 18 different shapes, there’s a bit of individuality around the room. Another idea is to print 9 to a page, making it a main activity for a lower level class.
