This zip file includes 5 Baking Stations/Clues, two student recording documents (scaffolded), a baking station schedule for 5 groups (editable), a PDF of the FlipChart Introduction, an answer key, and challenges for quick finishers.
This activity covers equivalent fractions and adding fractions with unlike denominators.
I assign the groups in advance. Within each group, I also assign each student a topping. Their job is to use the clues to determine the number of slices with their assigned topping at each baking station. The toppings are differentiated- pepperoni and extra cheese can be solved with one step, whereas sausage and green peppers may require a student to solve for ALL of the toppings before determining remainders.
A local pizzeria donates 5 pizza boxes, so I tape the clues inside the boxes. Students check their findings with their groups. I check their answers. When the timer rings, groups rotate to their next baking station based on their schedule.
