PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Spice up your fraction lesson with this hands-on math experience based on the book "Gator Pie" by Louise Mathews. This activity uses math literature as a model for students to connect fractions with everyday life.

What can possibly be better than making alligator pie?

Originally, this lesson was created for my second grade classroom. However, I LOVE this book so much that I have adapted the activities to fit the needs of third and fourth graders.

One year, I even walked into the classroom dressed as a crocodile hunter with a ripped up fish net and a swamp hat. Boy, did my kiddos go crazy!

The absolute best part of this lesson is the look on the students' faces when the alligator bones (pistatio pudding) turns green. Every teacher has a favorite lesson, and this lesson is mine!
