      I use the 5E lesson plan for 6th and 7th grade science. My "engagement" portion is a simple Warm-Up question. They work on it by themselves and after I see that everyone has attempted it, I have them discuss their answers with their table partners. Finally, I ask for volunteers to share their answers out loud with the class.

      The Engagement portion is just used to have their "brain juice" flowing, so whatever you can create to have your students think, become curious, and share their thought process, falls under Engagement.

      For fractions, you could also have them use manipulatives to match fractions with images (either individually, in groups, as a competition, etc.) , which can lead to a class discussion and easy transition into the "Explore" portion of the lesson plan.
