Product Description
Bring fun back into the classroom with this hot chocolate fractions activity! It involves crafting a replica of a homemade hot chocolate gift and answering questions involving fractions and measurement.

By participating in this activity, students will practice adding fractions with unlike denominators in the context of a real-world application that includes visual and hands-on components. They will also practice multiplication and division of fractions. The enrichment activity encourages further exploration of fractions in relation to measurement, as well as making connections with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers and decimals.

Key Concepts: Adding fractions with unlike denominators; Multiplying fractions; Dividing fractions

Common Core Mathematics standards aligned with this product:

Use equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NF.A.1 Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators.

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NF.B.4.A Interpret the product (a/b) × q as a parts of a partition of q into b equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations a × q ÷ b.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NF.B.7.A Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients.
