Learning goal: Students should understand that the definition of fraction doesn't restrict fractions to having a value less than 1. This lesson builds on students' prior understanding of non-unit fractions as sums of unit fractions to address the common misconception that all fractions are less than or equal to 1. Special Materials: Streamers, scissors (both optional)
