Hands on with Fractions & Decimals

Happy Friday! Today I am sharing an activity you could use at home or in the classroom when teaching fractions and decimals! This activity works well to provide a visual base ten model for students while learning the concept of fractions and decimals in tenths. We used a dry erase board for a little extra fun, but you could easily use pencil/paper.


  • Natural craft sticks
  • Colored craft sticks
  • Dry erase board, paper/pencil, etc. 

 I used a total of ten craft sticks each time to represent a base ten model. The colored craft sticks are what we were naming as a fraction and a decimal.

This activity could be used at the beginning of a unit to introduce the topic OR it could easily be used in math centers in a classroom! Students could create their own model and then identify the fraction and decimal.


  1. Love of teaching is a beautiful blog and articles are just magical thanks for sharing.

  2. Great Christian drug rehab programs aren't there to pass judgment on your value. They perceive that such a dependence has a more grounded, more perplexing hang on you than they can fathom. They will instruct you what they think about living drug free, regularly from their own encounters and expert preparing. All the more critically, they will instruct you to confide in God for your redemption, as opposed to depending on others, or even yourself. God will mend you in his time, in the event that you confide in yourself to be in his consideration.
