### Description

This math activity is designed to motivate students as they practice identifying equivalent fractions. The teacher holds up a fraction, the children look for a chocolate bar that represents an equivalent fraction, and if they are correct they earn the chocolate!

This math activity was designed for a special "Math Night" and was written so as to be completed by parent volunteers. The instructions (which are more in depth than those above) and materials included would be perfect for a fractions math center or small group lesson.

This fractions activity was designed with grades 3 to 5 in mind, (I teach fourth grade math) however I have included alternative instructions for a fraction activity for grades 1-2 as well. The objective of this math activity is to identify the visual representation of a given fraction. Answer keys are provided for both activities.

Update: This product now includes a digital version. The .pdf includes a link to a Google Slides version that you can easily assign through Google Classroom.

✅ 18 fraction flashcards
✅ 18 shaded fraction mats (for placing the bars on)
✅ A list of the 18 fraction mats (in case one goes missing and you need to replace it)
✅ An answer key for each fraction flash card

You will need:
► Chocolate bars! (You will need approximately 7 bars per 10 students) The chocolate bars need to be exactly 3 segments by 4 segments in order to be broken easily to fit the shaded fraction mats. The standard size Hershey Bar (TM) 1.55 oz works.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Explain why a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 × 𝘢)/(𝘯 × 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
