Product Description
This is a great hands-on fraction activity that involves the use of a yummy (and allergen free) treat!

Three differentiated worksheets cover a basic intro to fractions, adding fractions with like denominators, and adding fractions with unlike denominators.

Give each student a roll of smarties, and have them sort the candies into the colored circles. (I always encouraged my students to write the number of smarties they had of each color as well, in case we needed to look back at the numbers after the smarties were long gone.)

Using the candy manipulatives, the students can then answer the fraction- related questions.

The best part is that students can help each other and work in small groups, but can each complete his/ her own work, since every package of smarties is different.

It's a great way to introduce & practice such a challenging concept: Fractions.
