Product Description
This resource offers fraction and decimal activities for you to use on or around St. Patrick's Day. You will need the cereal Lucky Charms for these activities. This resource is appropriate for grades 3-5, but aligns to the 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 Pot of Gold!, 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 pieces of Lucky Charms cereal (or 100 depending on the version you would like to use) 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.

We hope your students enjoy this fun, hands on, St. Patrick’s Day Math activity as much as we do!

Best of luck! ;)
