This lesson on adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators is great as a review of upper elementary students or as a re-teach for middle school students. It can be adapted to meet your needs.
Included in this download is a guided note foldable so the student may included it in his/her interactive math journal. The notes review common denominators, the algorithm for adding and subtracting fractions and examples. Visual models are also part of the notes.
The practice/review sheet will allow the students to refine their skills. It can be used as a practice in class or homework.
And finally, an activity that allows the students to use critical thinking skills when reading math problems on cards that are provided and then building models of those candy bars.
