These fraction and decimal activities are so much fun for the holiday season. Your students will plan a Thanksgiving meal and a Christmas cookie planner. At the same time, they will be getting SO MUCH practice with decimal and fraction operations!

Neither activity involves any actual cooking. This is purely a hypothetical (yet fun and engaging!) math activity.

In each activity, your students will move through 8 steps and will have the chance to make choices in planning their holiday food. Steps include ideas like setting a budget, deciding how many people they are cooking for, choosing a recipe guide and adjusting the recipes to fit their preferred party size.

Each student will have the opportunity to work through a unique experience as they are in charge of their own meal planning (or cookie planning!) choices.

Each Activity Includes:

  • 8 Task Cards- These cards walk your students through the steps of the activity.
  • Recording forms- Specifically tailored to each activity.
  • "Recipe Guides"- These guides are NOT recommended for actual cooking! The recipes have been tailored to the math activity and making sure your students get a nice variety of practice.

The activity can be run in a number of ways including:

  • Hanging the cards around the room for a "walk the room" activity.
  • Projecting 1 task daily as a warm-up activity leading up to the holidays.
  • Put all task cards on a binder ring for use as a math center.
  • Project the cards in a full group setting and use the full activity as a lesson!

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘒/𝘣 + 𝘀/π˜₯ = (𝘒π˜₯ + 𝘣𝘀)/𝘣π˜₯.)
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
