How To Teach Your Kids Fractions Using Pool Noodles

This is such a great idea!

Right about now, your kids are probably enjoying their summer vacation with plenty of time floating around in the pool or at the beach. It’s hard to believe school starts in about a month for many students and it will be here before you know it.

While they probably have no interest in learning anything during these final weeks of summer, believe it or not, you can help them get a jump start on the school year with a fun math lesson about fractions — yes, there is such a thing! And, all you need is a swimming toy you probably already have floating around somewhere: a pool noodle!
