To use this product in my class, I first printed everything on white construction paper.
I asked my students to complete 2 equivalent snowmen. So I gave each child a page of 4 snowballs and 2 sets of hats, scarves, noses, and eyes. Students folded two of the snowballs to show the fractions of their choice. They then drew the lines and wrote the unit fraction on each piece. Students glued a plain snowball on top of each fraction snowball. They then colored, cut out, and glued the hats and such. I had my students draw on the mouths and rip small pieces of brown construction paper to create arms. Once they had the snowmen together, they worked with fraction tiles to come up with 4 equivalent fractions for each snowman. The fraction tiles only go to twelfths so I had students show as many equivalents as they could. I then talked them through looking for a pattern in the denominators. All of my kiddos quickly realized the denominators were multiples. They used that knowledge to create equivalents without the tiles. They wrote these on snowflakes and glued them around their snowmen.
