Equivalent Fractions Song Lyrics:

Once upon a time, there were nine canaries
On telephone wires, sittin’ down in threes.
Each wire contained one third of the birds,
So three ninths is equivalent to one third.
Drawing 1/3 and 3/9 on a number line
Shows 1/3 equals three parts out of nine.
Therefore, equivalent is the word
That describes 3/9 and 1/3.

Equivalent fractions is the name
For fractions whose values are the same.

If there were four socks to wear,
Then we would say there’d be two in each pair;
And one of the two pairs, we can declare,
Equals two fourths of all the socks there.
Drawing one half and two fourths on a number line
Shows they can be described with an equal sign;
An equal value is what they’re worth,
So we say one half is equivalent to two fourths.

Equivalent fractions is the name
For fractions whose values are the same.

If the numerator and denominator share a common factor,
Then you can divide the top and bottom by the same number.
On top and under, and say with satisfaction,
“We found an equivalent fraction.”
And you can multiply the top and the bottom
By the same number on top and under,
Which is really a fraction whose value equals one,
And through this action we found an equivalent fraction!
