Now that you understand what a non unit fraction is I would like you to have a go at making your own non unit fractions using lego! 

 

REMEMBER - When you are making your fractions that each part must be the same size or equal to each other. So you'll need to make sure that your lego parts are the same shape and size before making your fractions.

 

Look at the picture below as an example (the picture below shows a mixture of unit and non unit fractions but I would like you to focus on just non unit fractions)

Once you have finished, take a photo of the non unit fractions you have made!laugh

 

Have fun with this activity! I look forward to seeing your pictures soon yes
