Product Description
About this Product:

This resource offers 3 activities for you to use on or around Valentine’s Day. You will need conversation hearts for two of these activities. These activities are appropriate for grades 3-5, but align to 4th Grade Common Core Standards.

MACC.4.NF.A.1
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions

MACC.4.NF.3.6 Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100.


In the first activity, Find Your Sweetheart!, students will find the fractional amounts of a set by using tally marks and creating a table.

In the second activity, My Fraction, My Decimal, students will use 10 conversation hearts to demonstrate the relationship from fractions to decimals. Then, plot the decimals and fractions on a number line. This is a wonderful activity to use when introducing decimal/fraction relationships.

The third activity, Our Hearts Belong Together, reinforces the concept of equivalent fractions. Students will use a key to color in equivalent fraction hearts for 1/2 , 1/4, 1/3, 2/4.

There is an answer key for the third activity. I hope your students enjoy this fun, hands on, Valentine’s Day Math activity as much as we do!

Happy Valentine’s Day! 
