In class we are learning about fractions and because Miss John is nice she let us use fruit to help us. Over the last two days we did this. First we used oranges to help us with quarters, Miss John asked us some questions like if I had 50 oranges then put them into thirds how many thirds would I have? The answer is 150.The next day we used mandarins, our mandarins were divided into eight segments.  Today we are doing watermelon and dividing it into 20ths . We cut the watermelon in half then in quarters then into 20ths. The circumference was 70cm and my piece is 3.5cm and weighs 311 grams.
