This quick, easy
craftivity will give your students the hands-on experience of “slicing an apple pie” 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.
a paper “pie”, as well as the paper plate “crust”, then assembling the pieces, will help reinforce the idea of fractions
, as well as the new vocabulary
Using a black marker, students can label
each piece with the word and fraction
, writing around the inside edge of the pie pieces, or they can cut and glue the labels
to their plates, or you can have them do both for more practice.
When everyone is done, as a whole group, review each section, then take a minute or two to play “Show Me!”
i.e “Show me the whole pie; show me a quarter of the pie; show me half the pie.”
Students turn the pieces, which are attached by a brass brad, ’til whatever fraction you’re asking for can be seen, then they hold their pie in the air.
This simple game
not only reinforces the vocabulary and concept once more, it’s a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess
Just for fun, children open up all 3 sections, and I lightly spritz them with cinnamon apple fragrance. My kiddos love this, and our room smells delicious.
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 pie craft, so here it is. I'm always happy to pull just the craft activities out of the jumbo packets and sell them separately.
