Thanksgiving is a fun time of year, but it’s also a time where you need something to keep your students busy with simplifying and making equivalent fractions. This great craftivity allows your students to review a key fraction concept while creating something fun for the holidays.
Ways to use this craftivity:
1. Have students create equivalent fractions for the fractions written on Set A feathers
2. Have students simplify fractions for the fractions written on Set B feathers
3. Combine Sets A and B for a greater challenge
4. Use Set C feathers to create your own fraction equivalence problems.
Cut out the feathers. Write your equivalent fraction on the feather stripe. Color both your feathers and turkey body. Attach feathers to the turkey.
Use this craftivity for a bulletin board or hall display, desk decoration, or to hang from the ceiling in your classroom.
