These ten 5th grade performance tasks are great to use to incorporate real life examples into your multiplying and dividing fractions unit of study. Students will use the skills that they have learned to make connections to cooking and baking.
These performance tasks can be used homework, centers, enrichment, whole group on an interactive whiteboard/ projector, assessment, or just for a fun learning activity! An answer key to every task has been included for your convenience. :)
I recently updated this file to include another fun resource - My Student Cooking Task! It would be great to use as a culminating activity to end your fractions unit or an extra credit assignment! A sample student response has been included for your convenience. Enjoy!
