Introduce fractions to your students with a tasty treat!
After learning fractions are parts of a whole, my students put this to practice using cereal. First, I give myself a couple handfuls of cereal and together we complete fractions for each of the different marshmallow shapes. (I only count marshmallows to determine my denominator.) Then I give each student a couple handfuls of Lucky Charms ensuring that they get plenty of marshmallows and they practice fractions using their own cereal.
In addition to this resource you need Lucky Charms cereal!
To follow up this activity, we always do fractions bowling!! You can find that here! Make a full day of all the fun!
