This six page math handout targets identifying fractional parts in lowest terms and working with equivalent fractions. In each message set, specific words are given. The students are instructed to figure out the correct fractional part of each particular word. (Example: The first ½ of WEST would be WE. Notice that WE is also 2/4 of WEST.) If each fractional part is correctly identified, when the letters are written on the lines provided, a new word is created. Each set of new words becomes a message about the month of April. In the original handout, there are seven sets of April messages followed by a question to answer or a riddle to solve. This means there are seven ways to practice identifying fractional parts as well as recognizing fractions in lowest terms.

Instead of completing all seven in one day, the puzzles may be divided up and used as a focus activity. Simply give the students one puzzle each day or intersperse them throughout the month of April. Answers are included at the end of the handout. For a sample set, download the preview version of this handout.
