This is an awesome project that I have used many times with my students. In this project, students add fractions and make common denominators using pattern blocks. They make a picture with their pattern blocks. You can have students make pictures that are holiday themed or let them choose their own theme.
-A teacher directions page
-Calculations page for organizing their math work
-PowerPoint presentation that describes each step so students clearly see what the need to do
-Good, ok, and bad student examples so students can see how the finished product will look
