  American patchwork quilt designs are archived 
  alphabetically. Each patchwork illustration consists of a 
  series of animated line drawings, along with a colorized 
  version of the block. 

  Instructions are available for saving the illustrations of 
  patterns:

        VARNELLE'S PRIMARY MATH - INTRODUCTION TO FRACTIONS

              http://mathforum.org/varnelle/knum.html

  A unit by Varnelle Moore, designed to guide young 
  children (K-2) through an introduction to fractions: 

    - equal parts
    - divide and shade
    - parts to whole
    - writing fractions

  Each lesson includes an interactive, manipulative-based 
  project, an activity incorporating technology, paper/pencil
  practice, and literature connections.

  Helpful links and teacher support extension ideas are also 
  provided:
