PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fractions... what can I say? My students are in the depths of learning all about them, and I needed more fun activities to spice up our math time and keep them engaged. I decided to take some real life examples of using fractions in the kitchen and create these 3 centers. Please check out the preview for sample pages of all 3 activities.

5 real life cookie ingredient lists are included for students to use as the basis of modifying recipe amounts. There is sure to be a favorite type of cookie between peanut butter, sugar, chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, and oatmeal raisin. Each type of cookie includes a recipe card, student answer sheet with 3 ways to modify the fractions, and an answer sheet. I used this by dividing students into 5 teams (one per cookie) and their team was responsible for completing all 3 versions of their recipe card. We rotated through to all 5 throughout the week.

Center 2: Equivalent Fraction Task Cards
20 equivalent fractions cards are included using multiple choice answers. A student answer sheet and answer key are also provided. I used this in my classroom for students to play a scoot game and roam the classroom answering cards to review.

Center 3: Match it up Mixing Bowls
There are 32 labeled bowls for students to match up with equivalent fractions. I used this in my classroom by giving each of my 32 students a fraction bowl and they had to find the other 3 people (4 people total) that had equivalent fractions to theirs. When one round was completed, I collected the bowls, mixed them up, and passed them out again for students to find different partners. These were then put in a center for students to match all 32 bowls with the correct groups.

I hope this helps your students grasp fractions!
