Product Description
This quick, easy and fun craftivity will give your students the hands-on experience of “slicing an apple" into fractions.

I truly believe that adding a bit of craftiness to a tedious concept, not only grabs students’ attention, but truly helps them understand what you’re trying to explain to them.

Cutting a paper “apple”, then assembling the pieces, will help reinforce the idea of fractions, as well as the new vocabulary.

They can also see at a glance a divided apple. Using the 3 colors of an apple makes the visual pop.

There are two pattern options.
The one pictured, as well as a trace and write the word version.

When everyone is done, as a whole group, review each fraction, then take a minute or two to play “Show Me!”
i.e “Show me the whole apple; show me a quarter of the apple; show me half the apple.”

Students flip the pieces, which are attached by a staple, ’til whatever fraction you’re asking for can be seen, then they hold their apple in the air.

This not only reinforces the vocabulary and concept once more, it’s a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess.

This craftivity is included in my jumbo Apple Fraction Action Packet. Buy the bundle and get a lot, while you save a bunch.

However, I had a request for just this apple fraction craft, so here it is. I'm always happy to pull just the craft activities out of the jumbo packets and sell them separately.

I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy fraction fun with an apple.
