Product Description
We know that fractions can be tricky for students especially working with equivalent fractions. Where is one place that fractions are frequently found? …the kitchen.

This product was created after my second grade smarties a few years ago realized the connection between fractions and cooking. This was what I created to help them work with fractions and take on cooking tasks.

In this product, students get hands-on practice finding equivalent fractions with a tool they create called the fraction slider. They play a version of Four Corners to find equivalent fractions. They use their skills to rewrite mixed up recipes with uncommon fractions so they can actually make the recipes

Why you will love this product?
→ Students get hands-on practice identifying & understand what are equivalent fractions
→ Fraction slider tool that can be used throughout fraction unit
→ Students get to move while learning
→ Students get hands-on learning and practicing life cooking skills
→ Has students working together to create something yummy or fun

In this unit you will find
→ Measuring Tools for Cooking Posters
→ Equivalent Fraction poster
→ Four Corners equivalent fraction game
→ Fraction slider material and directions
→ 7 recipes in three versions- normal, mixed up fractions and blank to use for recording the correct fractions
→ Ideas on how to extend fraction work with these recipes

Recipes are all ones I have used in my classroom over the years. They are:
→ Gingerbread Playdough
→ Oobleck
→ Fruit Yogurt Dip
→ Berry Muffins
→ Pumpkin Granola
→ Healthy Energy Balls
→ Ranch Dressing

Time to get cooking and finding those fractions!
