This set of fraction word problems is based upon a short scenario about a girl who is having an Easter Egg Hunt. As she dyes eggs, the number of eggs changes and students must name the new fractional amounts for each new denominator. The students will find equivalent fractions as well. The students must illustrate, and explain their answers. The fraction information changes with each question, so the students must realize that the denominators must change as well.
It works well to get students thinking critically and writing to explain their thinking.
