PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

CHECK OUT THE PREVIEW! Edible? Check. Interactive? Check. Informative? Check. This lesson walks students through explaining what a benchmark fraction is and how they determine them. Side note, this particular input page also reflects back on prior knowledge of EQUIVALENT fractions to spiral back to previous standards.

Students use gummy bears (Yum!) to plot fractions on a number line and then estimate to find the benchmark fraction (either 0, 1/2 or 1). As the students use the delicious, sugary treats to plot their points, they begin to see the relationship between the given fraction and the benchmark fractions! Can you say fun and easy?!
