This activity allows students to utilize math skills in an engaging and fun way. It helped them realize that math can be used in everyday life. The activity has students working with a variety of different 4th or 5th grade fraction skills such as adding fractions with like and unlike denominators, adding mixed numbers, converting mixed numbers to improper fractions, converting improper fractions to mixed numbers, simplifying fractions, comparing fractions and ordering fractions.
