This Common Core State Standards Equivalent Fractions M&M's Differentiated Task Pack is appropriate for 3rd and 4th grade, and supports standards 3.NF.A.1 and 3.NF.A.3. Students are asked to create basic fractions from a set of 8 M&M's, and then formulate equivalent fractions using more M&M's as manipulatives. An answer key for the set is included. Skills addressed include basic fractions, comparing fractions, and equivalent fractions. Tasks include practice for below, on, and above level visual and kinesthetic learners, making the curriculum both accessible and challenging for all. Perfect for a Fractions unit, or for Math test preparation and review. Excellent for use as a learning station, cooperative learning task, homework, or could be used as a practice task after direct or small group instruction. This valuable resource could also be used as a remediation tool for those who need an extra push, hands-on learning, and more exposure to comparing and equivalent fractions. The addition of a pack of M&M's makes the content even more engaging!
