Students will embark upon a cooking adventure where they have to solve 10 equivalent fraction activities that are challenges that relate directly to math in the real world. Students identify equivalent fractions on number lines, partition rectangles into equal pieces and find equivalent fractions, find equivalent fractions using fraction strips, and find equivalent fractions using pictures.

Explain to students that they will become chefs and will need to complete all ten challenges! They have to find all ten challenges you've left around the classroom and solve the challenge that the chef needs to complete. They use the recording sheet to mark off each challenge as they go.

When students finish all ten challenges, they receive a candy bar and use it to find equivalent fractions too! There is also an additional writing activity where students scan the QR codes on each poster and find out fun facts about chefs!
