FUN WITH ADDING FRACTIONS LESSON:
Hook: Cookie word problem.
Mini Lesson: Review steps for adding fractions.
Fraction Dice Game: TSW practice using fraction bars to create fractions and to add fractions with unlike denominators using fraction bars.
During the activity, two students will each roll a pair of dice (a numerator cube and a denominator cube). The third student will record each fraction on a chart. Then, TSW will use their fraction bars to create equivalent fractions with like denominators. Finally, TSW solve the problem by adding the equivalent fractions.
EXTENSION ACTIVITY: TSW use a RICE graphic organizer to create word problems for their fractions.
