Product Description
This activity allows students to get hands on practice multiplying fractions by whole numbers.

In this activity every student receives 25 skittles(or other manipulative) to model solving problems such as 3/4 x 16. They model separating the whole number, 16, into 4 equal groups and then taking 3 groups to represent 3/4 of the original amount.

The problems are scaffolded moving from a fully drawn model to having them create their own model.

This activity has been a favorite every year because it is hands on and DELICIOUS!
