PRODUCT 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.

This download includes:
★ 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)
★ Directions for preparation, grades 3-5 implementation, and grades 1-2 implementation
★ An answer key for each fraction flash card

Not included:
*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 (1.55 oz) works.
