To solve the 24 different fraction puzzles included in "Frightful Fractions to Fry Your Mind!" students must use their knowledge of fractions, as well as a great deal of logic skills. Simply put, each problem depicts a "whole" that has been divided into various fractional parts which students must then identify. Caution: These puzzles are not for the faint or weak of mind! Originally, I had created these puzzles for my 4th grade children, however, I tweaked the puzzles "just a bit" to provide more of a challenge to my 5th grade gifted and talented students. The problems start out simple enough, however rapidly progress to higher levels of difficulty.
Included in this packet are 8 reproducible (front and back) handouts containing 3 puzzles each, for a total of 24 puzzles altogether. Also included are the same 8 exact worksheets featuring answer keys.
These worksheets are great for students to hone their fraction (and overall thinking) skills, whether in math centers, as homework and/or classwork, or as test preparation for state standardized tests.
The worksheets in "Frightful Fractions to Fry Your Mind" are also rendered in black and white, thereby producing crisp, clear copies every time.
As always, I appreciate you taking the time to preview this product - or any of my products - and hope it will prove to be of benefit to you and your children for many years to come.
For more things weird, wild, wonderful and slightly "out of the box," please visit my store, "The Teacher's Twilight Zone."
Once again, thank you!
5th Grade Teacher
