This activity includes 10 recipes (that have been modified for fractional purposes).
Students have only 3 measuring scoops to work with: 1/8 cup, 1/4 cup, and 1/2 cup. They will have to practice converting fractions using only these measuring tools.
For example: If the recipe called for 1 cup of milk, the student would have to figure out that it would take 8 1/8 cups or 4 1/4 cups or 2 1/2 cups to equal the 1 cup needed in the recipe.
I use this in my classroom with real measuring scoops for manipulatives and let students work with a partner.
