Poetry Month-Fractions of Me!

One of my co-workers had this fabulous math book with ideas and it had this in it.  I love doing this project in April because of poetry month and during our fraction unit! My students make a rectangle in their math journals and draw lines so they end up with 6 boxes. They have to decide what makes them up. Since it's cut into sixths here is an example...1/6 of me is a daughter, 1/6 of me is a soccer player, etc. They fill all boxes as a prewriting activity.  Then I have a final copy paper that they fill in and write sentences abot what makes them a whole.   Next,  they create arms (sentence strip), hands from the ellison machine, they create pants/skirt, and cut out a head. They always come out so cute!!!
