Activity 1:

Watch the clip to learn what quarters are.

Like we did when we found half, I want you to make some shapes with paper e.g. a circle/square/rectangle and fold them into quarters. Remember, quarters mean 4 equal pieces.

How many different ways can you fold your shapes into quarters?

Activity 2:

Find some objects around the house you can cut into quarters (with your grown up) e.g. a biscuit, a piece of fruit, a slice of bread, cube of cheese etc.

Remember you are cutting your food into four, equal parts. Take some pictures of your food. What is the same? What is different? Do all your quarters look the same?

Challenge:

Can you circle the shapes that have been split into quarters correctly?
