Subject: Multiplying fractions

How can I teach the CONCEPT of multiplying fractions to 5th grade learning 
disabled students? When multiplying whole numbers, the answer is larger than 
what we started with. But in multiplying fractions, the answer can sometimes 
be smaller.  I can't come up with an effective way to teach the REASONING 
behind it.  Any help you can give will be appreciated.
Thank you.
