This six page resource contains eight Halloween fraction riddles which provide students practice in putting fractional parts in lowest terms as well as recognizing equivalent fractions. Specific words are provided, and the students are to figure out the correct fractional part of each particular word. (Example: The first 1/3 of LEDGER which would be LE.) If the fractional part is correctly identified, when the students write the fractional parts on the lines provided, a new word is formed. Each group of new words becomes a Halloween riddle.
These riddles can be completed all at once or divided up and used as a focus activity each day for eight days. Another idea would be to intersperse them throughout the month of October. Answers are included at the end of the resource.
I also offer riddles for six months in a 33 page bundle at a discounted price at:
